The Boston Globe reports that the Mashpee Wampanoag would pay the state 17 percent of gambling revenue from a Taunton tribal casino under a new agreement between the tribe and Governor Deval Patrick, a reduction from the Commonwealth's earlier demand of 21.5 percent of revenue, which the federal government rejected as too much.
While the agreement is one ingredient needed for tribal gambling, the Globe reports that the tribe still faces legal obstacles to opening a gambling business, including its effort to put its Taunton land into federal trust.
