FRIDAY, JULY 13, 2001 Idaho Attorney General Al Lance on Thursday issued a legal opinion stating that a gaming initiative by the Coeur d'Alene Tribe won't legalize electronic gaming in Indian Country.

Chairman Ernie Stensgar said the tribe will continue with the project, which could cost between $4 million and $8 million. Get the Story:
