SANTA FE -- The Bureau of Indian Affairs added clarity to its recent policy for off-reservation casinos. The BIA said this week that new Indian casinos should be within 25 miles of a reservation headquarters.

In two cases this year the U.S. Interior Department rejected requests for off-reservation casinos. The Jemez Pueblo were denied a casino near Anthony in southern New Mexico, and the Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma were stopped from opening a casino near Deming.

The BIA will allow exceptions. If a tribe owns land away from a reservation and there is a significant number of tribal members living there or nearby, the tribe may seek reservation status for that land.
