IT APPEARS A NEW RULE ON WHERE CASINOS CAN BE BUILT WON'T AFFECT AN OKLAHOMA TRIBE TRYING TO OPEN A CASINO IN NEW MEXICO. THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE BUREAU OF INDIAN AFFAIRS. THE FORT SILL APACHE TRIBE HAS BUILT A CASINO OFF INTERSTATE 10 EAST OF DEMING, BUT IT REMAINS CLOSED BECAUSE OF A DISPUTE ABOUT WHETHER IT'S ALLOWED. EARLIER THIS MONTH -- THE BUREAU SAID CASINOS SHOULD BE BUILT WITHIN 25 MILES OF A RESERVATION'S HEADQUARTERS. AN ATTORNEY FOR THE TRIBE SAYS HE DOESN'T BELIEVE THE DISTANCE LIMITS APPLY TO CASINOS RETROACTIVELY.
