The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians casino project has been approved by the federal government after several years of consideration. Since the federal approval of the tribe’s application has happened, the matter now must be approved by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. If Governor Whitmer provides approval of this project there will be a casino built in Muskegon County.

I have encouraged Governor Whitmer to quickly approve this project so that the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians can begin construction of this major facility.

Governor Whitmer needs to hear from you about the positive impact that this casino will have on Muskegon County. Please provide your contact information as well as your specific comments that we can pass along to Governor Whitmer to encourage her to support the casino in Muskegon County.
