State treasurer opposes proposed Shawnee casino
June 10, 2008
OKLAHOMA CITY - State Treasurer Scott Meacham joined Gov. Henry’s opposition to
the proposed Shawnee Tribe casino near Remington Park in Oklahoma City and wrote
a letter to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs predicting "devastating
consequences” and requesting it not be built.
He wrote "A new Shawnee (Tribe) casino in Oklahoma City would clearly result in
reduced gaming revenues for Remington Park and the central Oklahoma tribes. We
are approaching a near saturation of gaming and ‘destination casinos' in
The proposed site is 1.7 miles from Remington Park's racetrack and casino, which
claims the casino would put the track out of business. "The primary horse racing
gaming in the state occurs at its largest track, Remington,”
Meacham said, “and the state's racing industry would be placed at risk.”
