State wants more oversight of Indian casinos

Lead in text: 
State officials say all tribal casinos must give two percent of revenues to their local communities under a 1993 agreement.
By Ted Roelofs/Bridge Magazine contributor Since Indian casino gambling in Michigan began in 1994, seven tribes have doled out more than $200 million in communities surrounding their casinos. It was widely presumed, under a federal decree governing these payouts, that 2 percent of slot machine and video gaming profits would go to local government to compensate for economic costs of casino operations.
