FRIDAY, MAY 30, 2003

The chief of the Narragansett Tribe of Rhode Island criticized a bill that would set up checkpoints around the tribe's reservation in order to make customers pay state cigarette tax.

The tribe wants to open a tax-free smoke shop on tribal land but Gov. Donald Carcieri says the plan is illegal. Rep. Charlene Lima wrote a bill to make sure the tax is collected.
