Gov. Jennifer Granholm and the chairman of a southwestern Michigan Indian tribe agreed Friday on a proposed compact that would allow a gambling casino to be built about 20 miles south of the city.
Granholm and D.K. Sprague, tribal chairman of the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians, also known as the Gun Lake tribe, signed the Class III gaming compact. It requires approval from the Michigan Legislature for it to take effect.
