Okla. tribes upset over state of compact negotiations
Tuesday, September 23, 2003

Oklahoma tribal leaders expressed their frustration with the administration of Gov. Brad Henry (D) at a press conference on Monday.

The tribes said the state is unwilling to negotiate over tobacco compacts that are expiring. They said the state wants to double its take of tax revenues but won't discuss it.

The tribes worry that an increase in the tobacco tax will shut down their businesses.
