AG says ‘no dice’ to Lansing casino

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette’s latest cause is the defeat of a plan to build a gaming casino in downtown Lansing.

Schuette and Gov. Rick Snyder have told the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewas, which already operates five casinos, that they can’t build on non-tribal property, reports Michigan Public Radio.

But the tribe’s spokesman disagrees, and so does Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero. The tribe says that it has the legal right to take the land into trust.
