Salem, Ore. – Oregon Governor Kate Brown may not be in support of a proposed casino in Medford.
The Coquille Tribe says the Governor called the Tribal Chairperson saying she would oppose plans for the Cedars at Bear Creek Casino.
A letter will be sent to the Bureau of Indian Affairs next week.
Back in July, Jackson County Commissioners approved an inter-governmental agreement, giving them a voice during the environmental impact statement study. Since the study has yet to be released, the tribe expressed their disappointment in Gov. Kat Brown’s decision.
