Choctaws should play by the same rules as others on the Coast

The Choctaws, in an effort started by former Chief Phillip Martin, want to expand their gaming operations beyond their present two tax-free tribal casinos in Neshoba County. In particular, they want a slice of the increasingly lucrative market on the Coast, but they don't want to play by the same rules as the non-Indian casinos already located there.

They are seeking to have some land they've acquired in Jackson County designated as reservation land, even though historically it was no such thing.
