DECISION DAY COMING SOON ON CALIFORNIA CASINO

Feb 3, 2002 11:39 PM

The federal government will decide in the next few days whether a planned $100 million casino in the Sacramento area will get off the ground.

The project, to be managed by Station Casinos, is slated to be built on a 58-acre parcel of land owned by the Auburn Indians.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs recently reached a decision on a petition from the Sacramento ara United Indian Community to take possession of the parcel on behalf of the Auburn tribe.

Two weeks ago the Bush administration had withdrawal its earlier approval for the plan and had directed the BIA to re-examine the question, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal article.
