Feds: Sorry, no casino

It's official: Yesterday, the U.S. Department of the Interior rejected the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans' application for approval to build a resort casino in a hamlet in Sullivan County.

The Times Herald-Record has the story:

The Department of Interior formally notified the tribe that it would not approve the compact, a needed first step in a process that could have led to final approval for the casino in Bridgeville.
