The Michigan Economic Development Corporation announced that the Gun Lake Band of Pottawatomi has withheld its gaming revenue sharing payments, and expressed concern that it may impact its budget.
The Gun Lake Band has issued a statement in response:
Clearly, when the Tribe and the State negotiated our gaming compact we discussed internet lottery. Both parties agreed that if the State introduced internet lottery sales or expanded other forms of electronic gaming to social clubs within the Tribe’s market area that the Tribe would not have to make state revenue sharing payments. The State has decided to offer internet lottery sales and electronic gaming within the Tribe’s market area.
The full statement is below.
