Oklahoma (Indian gaming) – Buck Wargo, CDC Gaming Reports – Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt said the courts may have to decide whether tribal gaming compacts expire Jan. 1 and acknowledged that he had met with commercial casino executives and that they had expressed interest in coming to his state. Stitt spoke Friday during a press conference at the Western Governors Association meeting at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas. He said negotiating a deal with the tribes is his first priority, rather than bringing commercial gaming to Oklahoma.
