Prop 48 fails to garner needed support
PROP 48 - Voters have said no to Prop 48, the Indian gaming proposition that would have allowed a partnership between the state and the North Fork Mono and Wiyot tribes to build a casino on land that was not part of a reservation.
Twelve years went into the drafting of the ordinance with two governors as part of the process. Wiyot tribal officials are disappointed and believe some fear mongering had been injected into the campaign after an exhaustive attempt at making sure all legalities were met in good faith. Opponents were fearful that it would open up more tribal casinos into non tribal lands.
The Wiyot tribe will now meet with its tribal council to consider other options.
