  • Supreme Court hears American Indian land case

    By Andrew Miga
    Washington, D.C. (AP)

    Rhode Island officials told the Supreme Court on Nov. 3 that permitting the federal government to hold land owned by the Narragansett Tribe would undercut the state’s criminal, safety and zoning laws.

    State leaders fear if the 31-acre lot is governed by tribal and federal law, they would lose jurisdiction over it. The tribe could then build a casino on the land or create a tax-free zone that would hurt the state’s revenues. Casinos are banned under state law, but tribes can build and operate them on lands held in federal trust.
