Hundreds attend hearing for Spokane Tribe casino

SPOKANE -- Hundreds of people attended a Monday night hearing on plans for a proposed Spokane Tribe casino at Airway Heights.
The tribe said it would create 2,000 jobs. But some of the opponents are Kalispel tribal members who say it would hurt their Northern Quest Casino, just three miles away.
KXLY reported that others are concerned about the proposed casino's location in the flight path for Fairchild Air Force Base. Spokane Tribal Council Chairman Greg Abrahamson said the Pentagon says Fairchild will be fine.
After a public comment period ends April 16, the Bureau of Indian Affairs will issue a final environmental impact statement for the casino.
The Spokane Tribe ultimately needs approval from the secretary of Interior and the governor.
