PASCAGOULA – The November 6th election in Mississippi included a non-binding
referendum to stop the plans of the Mississippi Band of Choctaws to build a new
casino. The referendum was approved by 60 percent of the voters.
Choctaw tribal leaders said the election was not part of the approval process,
and they will continue seeking a permit to build a casino on their land. They
must first get permission from the U.S. Department of Interior, and then
negotiate a compact with the Mississippi governor.
If successful, they plan to build a casino resort with 2,300 slot machines, a
400-seat restaurant, and a 1,100-room hotel. There may also be 240,000 square
feet of shopping area and a 27-hole golf course.
