The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians in California might acquire a property next to its casino.

The San Pablo Lytton Casino already leases a parking lot at the financially troubled Doctors Medical Center. Talks are underway to purchase the entire property but the tribe's general counsel said that doesn't mean the gaming facility will be expanding.

"There are a host of reasons we might want it," Larry Stidham told The Contra Costa Times. "It doesn't have to be related to game."

The tribe is limited to Class II gaming at the casino. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) has repeatedly introduced bills to ensure the tribe doesn't expand the size of the facility without undergoing additional federal and state reviews.
