Feds to Close Iowa Tribe Casino
By earl
The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) on Tuesday, May 13, served them with a legal closure order, but have asked the local Meskwaki tribe to close their casino voluntarily, temporarily, because of a “substantial violation of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, NIGC regulations, and the gambling ordinance of the Sac and Fox of Mississippi in Iowa Tribe.”

The closure notice was “effective immediately.” The NIGC order stated that the Sac and Fox Tribe casino would be shut down by authorities if it was not shut down by the tribes. themselves by the end of Tuesday.

By the end of Tuesday, it was business as usual.

This pleased the local residents of Tama, who reportedly feel that closing the casino [even temporarily] would have a “devastating economic impact on the town” the Iowa Channel reported. No further developments in the stand-off where known at press time.
