North Dakota House Rejects Resolution that Would have Allowed More Casinos in State

North Dakota State Capitol

Published March 23, 2017

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA – North Dakota House legislators rejected a resolution on Thursday that called for up to six state-owned casinos away from American Indian reservations and North Dakota’s larger cities by a 28 – 63 vote.

The resolution would have created a state commission to regulate the gaming industry. Had the resolution passed, North Dakota voters would have been asked to to vote on increasing the number of casinos in the 2018 general election.

The resolution to allow additional casinos was opposed by American Indian tribes in North Dakota.

Thursday’s vote was the “best decision for all parties involved,” stated Three Affiliated Tribes Chairman Mark Fox.
