Poarch Creeks not afraid of state's investigation

Alabama attorney general Troy King has finished an investigation into gaming establishments in the state, including three owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.

King hasn't said when he will release his study. But tribal officials say they have nothing to fear because the tribe is in compliance.

King said he investigated the casinos to determine if the machines being operated are legal. Class III gaming is not allowed in the state.

The tribe has been working with the National Indian Gaming Commission to remove machines that may not be Class II. Separately, the tribe is hoping to negotiate a Class III compact.
