Proposed Casino Hits Snag

A proposed Northern Illinois Indian Casino hits a legal snag. The Potawatomi Tribe from Kansas bought land near Shabbona in Dekalb County. The tribe announced plans to go forward with the casino in August.

The tribe's newest problem is with how the land is classified. They say it should be a reservation. But the Federal Government says that may not be so. The tribe will have to go through even more federal legal hurdles.
