North Idaho Indian tribes filed an amended version of their gaming initiative in response to concerns raised by Idaho Attorney General Al Lance.

The initiative would legalize current tribal gaming operations, while placing limits on their growth. The tribes cut back on a proposal allowing for gaming machines to also conduct lottery games.

The Coeur d'Alene and Nez Perce tribes hope to qualify for the November 2002 ballot. They must collect more than 40,000 signatures to qualify.
