Gov debate: Tribal gaming

Inslee: There's a federal process and that process needs to be followed. I have a concern about expansion of tribal gaming that could lead to harm for existing businesses. Each of them needs to be reviewed on the merits. Need to look at land use impacts. There are legitimate concerns about how the Spokane Tribe proposal could affect Fairchild Air Force Base.

McKenna: Does he support revenue sharing with tribes. I do not think it's a good policy. The compacts don't allow it and I don't think we want the state government to become dependent on gaming revenue.

Inslee: Thanks for reminding me. I don't support revenue sharing on gaming
