Federal government rejects Lower Elwha Klallam casino

Port Angeles, Washington (AP) 1-08

The U.S. Interior Department has set back the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe’s long-term bid to build a small casino west of Port Angeles.

The government has rejected the tribe’s “placeholder” application to build a casino on land it owns on U.S. Highway 101, saying the application was incomplete.

Tribal Chairwoman Frances Charles said the Interior Department said the application was incomplete because it didn’t include environmental assessments of the site.

The placeholder application was filed to preserve the tribe’s option because they feared Congress was getting ready to ban off-reservation casinos. That ban hasn’t happened.
