The Columbian is reporting that the Cowlitz Tribe now has a reservation in La Center, Wash. after a decade-long legal battle. I do not know enough about the legal process, taking land in trust, potential challenges and the like to comment on the specifics of it. However, from a state revenue perspective the impact on Oregon video lottery sales is likely to be similar to the previously proposed Wood Village, Ore. casino. Of course the Wood Village proposals were voted down decidedly by Oregonians (68% No in 2010, 72% No in 2012) but Oregonians do not get to vote on the La Center casino, obviously. Three points for now.
