Enterprise Rancheria Reservation Shopping for Casino

The Enterprise Rancheria is reservations shopping for an off-reservation casino.

Enterprise Rancheria is still seeking a casino in Yuba County, saying it's on tribal land, although some opponents say the tribe is jumping outside its Butte County home.

Since 2002, the rancheria has been working to put 40 acres into trust on the Highway 65 corridor south of Marysville near Sleep Train Amphitheater, and get approval to operate a casino there.

The tribe has offices in Oroville and Marysville.

Enterprise Rancheria is best known for 72 tribal members.

Most tribal councils involved in disenrollments have shrouded their actions in secrecy, and despite a long history of American Indian press, tribes involved in disenrollments have time and again veiled themselves in a revisionist culture that they claim is antithetical to the media.

I want to know why this Casino has not happened. We need jobs in Yuba County, and this Casino is offering just that. If there is a government official that is stopping this Casino from happening, they should be removed from office. Please let me know what I can do to help.

I definitely agree with the person above. What this County needs is jobs and the casino will do just that. In this hard economic times, a casino is the best choice.
