Cowlitz Indian Tribe Terminate Revenue Sharing Agreement

Commissioners in Washington state’s Clark County last month voted to terminate a revenue-sharing agreement for a casino that the Cowlitz Indian tribe hopes to build in the county. Since the agreement was first reached in 2004 the composition of the commission has changed so that a majority no longer supports the casino. Complications have also arisen because the tribe is seeking to put land off the reservation into federal trust, a process that is now much harder because of a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Commissioners said they hoped that their decision would remove them from being at the end of “the casino hotline” from angry constituents.
