Gov. Jane Hull said she would rather see the Arizona Legislature tackle the Indian gaming question than see the issue go to a ballot initiative in 2002.

Meanwhile, Arizona's 15 gaming tribes also are undecided on whether to pursue an initiative, a legislative bill or another course of action.

Some members of the Senate have asked Hull to call a special session so the Legislature can grant itself ratification authority over new gambling compacts with Arizona's Indian tribes.
