Group wants Lansing casino

LANSING (AP) — A group is moving ahead with its effort to bring an American Indian casino to Lansing.

Ted O'Dell, chairman of Lansing Jobs Coalition, said he plans to ask City Council members to approve his request before trying a ballot issue. He wants to gather enough signatures to get it on the city's November ballot.

O'Dell's group did not submit the number of signatures needed to put the issue on the August ballot.

In April, a group aiming to build casinos in Lansing and six other Michigan cities launched a process that could put the measure before state voters this fall. "Michigan is Yours" needs more than 300,000 signatures from registered voters across the state.
