Hot Topics > Tribal Land Acquisition & Expansion > National Binder

The National Scope section of our web site is to provide a monthly "binder" of just a few of the hundreds of articles, editorials, and reports POLO receives every month. The contents of these binders illustrate the enormous problem we face NATIONALLY under current federal law with tribal sovereignty, tribal land acquisition and the mass development that inevitably ensues for the development of huge casinos, commercial centers and the expansion of tribal enterprises outside state and local regulations and zoning.

The reason we started with this article from 2002 is because it was the first time a national publication shined a very bright light on the Indian Gaming Industry.

"Imagine, if you will, Congress passing a bill to make Indian tribes more self-sufficient that gives billions of dollars to the white backers of Indian businesses - and nothing to hundreds of thousands of Native Americans living in poverty. Or a bill that gives hundreds of millions of dollars to one Indian tribe with a few dozen members - and not a penny to a tribe with hundreds of thousands of members. Or a bill that allows select Indian tribes to create businesses that reap millions of dollars in profits and pay no federal income tax - at the same time that the tribes collect millions in aid from American taxpayers. Can't imagine Congress passing such a bill? It did. Here's how it happened - and what it means."
