A voter forum was held in Arizona on Monday night to debate three competing Indian gaming measures.

A state official said allowing slot machines at race tracks could take away money from tribes. A race track representative disputed the claim.

A spokesperson for the Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) said its proposal is the best because more money will go to tribes. The Arizona Indian Gaming Association said sharing revenues with the state is a goodwill gesture.
