Bryce Marlatt, the senator of Woodward, Oklahoma is raising his concern over a new planned casino in the state on non tribal land.
The state has approved Golden Mesa Casino in Guymon which would be a $25 Million property of Shawnee Nation.
According to reports the new casino will be a game-changer for local economy, but it also brining concerns from Republican senator.
The Controversial project is located about 366-miles from the tribe’s headquarters in Oklahoma. Tribe’s headquarters is in Miami.
Mr. Marlatt has raised concern about this new property in the state, because according to him the property is going to be built at a non tribal land, which is not good.
He also thinks that state might take another look at this approved casino-property, to avoid any problem in future.
Marlatt believes that any such prejudice will set wrong president in the state and will allow tribes to do gambling business in all over the state, if that belongs to tribal land or not.
Currently there are at least 100 casino-gambling places are being operated by Indian Tribes in Oklahoma and hence if Oklahoma allowed other companies or people to invest in its gaming business then it would be a radical change in state.
The Golden Mesa Casino will be built in 42,000 square feet. The casino is expected to create 175 jobs and it will bring lots of revenue as well.
