Seminole Nation third to sign tobacco compact
Friday, October 3, 2003

The Seminole Nation became the third Oklahoma tribe to sign a new tobacco compact with the state.

The Chickasaw Nation and the Choctaw Nation signed deals last week. The agreements call on tribes to share a greater portion of their revenues with the state should the tobacco tax increase.

Smaller tribes are resisting the compacts, saying they will force them out of business.
