Ariz. tribes battle over gaming measures

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2002

A new ad by the Colorado River Indian Tribes of Arizona attacks a gaming initiative by another group of tribes.

CRIT claims the backers of the 17-tribe gaming initiative are six "rich" urban-based tribes. The Arizona Indian Gaming Association calls the charges baseless.

Voters are being asked to choose among three competing gaming measures. CRIT supports Proposition 200, the 17 tribes support Proposition 202 and the racetrack industry backs Proposition 201.
