Feds reject Mashpee casino compact with Massachusetts

15 October 2012

The Taunton Daily Gazette and other media report that the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs has rejected the tribal-state compact that the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe needs to have in place before proceeding with plans to build a tribal casino in Taunton, Massachusetts.

The Gazette states that the BIA has sent the agreement back for further negotiations, saying the revenue-sharing arrangement and other components of the compact violate the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. The tribe and state pledged to negotiate a new compact, the Gazette reports.
