OKMULGEE, Okla. (AP) — An attempt to override Muscogee Creek Nation Chief George Tiger's veto of a resolution opposing a proposed casino in Broken Arrow has failed.
The National Council's 10-5 vote fell two short of the votes needed for the override on Saturday. The Tulsa World reports that two members of the 17-member council were absent.
The National Council passed the resolution opposing the Kialegee Tribal Town's proposed casino on March 8th. The resolution says the Kialegees don't have jurisdiction on the restricted Creek allotment where the casino is to be built.
