TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 2003

It was state sovereignty, not tribal sovereignty, that was under attack in a recent campaign donation case, The Sacramento Bee says in an editorial today.

A state court said tribes are required to comply with state election law. The ruling, the paper says, "affirms basic principles of fairness and equality under the law, principles that the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, a wealthy gambling tribe from Palm Springs, has challenged."
