WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2002

Outgoing Arizona Governor Jane Hull (R) is expected to sign gaming agreements with 17 tribes after another attempt by the racetrack industry to stop her failed.

The tracks have fought the state and the tribes in court but have not been successful in their appeals. They also failed to convince voters to allow gaming at their facilities.

Instead, voters narrowly approved an initiative backed by the tribes that mimics the compacts that are being signed today.
