Narragansett Tribe to discuss casino referendum with governor

The Narragansett Tribe and Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I) plan to meet to discuss a gaming referendum that's due to appear on the November ballot.

The ballot asks voters to allow table games at two non-Indian gaming facilities. The tribe contends the measure is unconstitutional but lost a decision in court that it intends to appeal.

The tribe has asked voters for approval to operate a casino but has been rejected.
