TUESDAY, MARCH 26, 2002

Lawmakers in northwestern Connecticut have banded together to oppose an expansion of tribal gaming in the state.

The lawmakers fear the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation could receive federal recognition and open a casino in their region. They are asking Gov. John G. Rowland to oppose more casino development but he offered no promises.

The Schaghticoke Tribe has been seeking recognition for two decades. The tribe's petition is the subject of a court case which mandates a preliminary decision by December.
