Spokane tribe says casino no threat to air baseMay 3, 2013 @ 6:00 am
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A report commissioned by the Spokane Tribe says its proposed casino in Airway Heights would not affect flight operations at Fairchild Air Force Base.
Tribal Chairman Rudy Peone says the casino would meet both Air Force and Federal Aviation Administration regulations.
KREM reports ( http://bit.ly/123WtjN) the tribe's economic project still needs state and federal approval.
County commissioners oppose the casino because they worry it would threaten the future of the air base.
