Okla. tribes vent frustrations over compacts
Monday, September 22, 2003

Tribal leaders in Oklahoma are upset with what they say are one-sided negotiations with the state over tobacco compacts.

Thirteen tribes have compacts to share revenues from cigarette taxes. The state wants to double its take, from 25 percent to 50 percent, should the tax increase.

Tribal leaders will hold a press conference at the Waterford Marriott Hotel in Oklahoma City at 11 a.m. to discuss their concerns.
