Spokane Council Drops Opposition To Tribal Casino

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Spokane City Council has dropped its opposition to a casino planned by the Spokane Tribe near Fairchild Air Force Base.
    
The council switched its position Monday to neutral - neither for nor against.
    
Two years ago the council voted to oppose the project because some officials feared it would adversely affect the air base and make it a target for closure.
    
The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/1foDRFq ) the Air Force position on the casino also is neutral.
    
The casino still needs federal approval and the consent of the Washington governor.
