More Oregon Tribal Casino Proposals Expected - Saturday 6th of May 2006

OREGON – As reported by the Columbian: "A list of pending Indian casino proposals circulated Wednesday raises the possibility that the Klamath Tribes of southern Oregon will seek to build a casino in Aurora, Ore., some 20 miles south of Portland.

"Federal officials have been deluged with Indian casino applications in response to a bill sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that would shut the door on off-reservation gambling.

"Nineteen tribes, including the Colville, Muckleshoot and Spokane tribes here in Washington, submitted applications last month before the April 15 cutoff date in McCain's legislation.

"…The Klamath, which already operate a small casino in Chiloquin north of Klamath Falls, Ore., could be the latest tribe trying to get a toehold in the lucrative Portland-Vancouver market.

"…The list indicates the Klamath have applied for a casino on a 153-acre site in Clackamas County. Len Bergstein, a Portland consultant working for the Warm Springs, said he has reviewed the same list.

"...The list indicates 19 applications were submitted after the Senate Indian Affairs Committee's March 29 vote to approve (Senator) McCain's bill. The legislation was partially prompted by tribes seeking more lucrative locations for casinos, a trend some have dubbed 'reservation shopping.'..."
