Oklahoma Tribes Launch Campaign To Support Casinos

Oklahoma’s tribal casino operators have launched a public relations campaign to improve their image, amid a dispute over taxes and their state compact with Governor Kevin Stitt, who is determined to increase the fees tribes pay for the exclusive right to operate casinos.

Stitt, a Republican and Cherokee Nation citizen, has said the compacts expire on January 1 if no deal is brokered.

Currently, 35 of the state’s 38 federally-recognized tribes offer casino gaming under compacts and are unified in their position that the agreements automatically renew on January 1 if an agreement cannot be reached on new terms.
