Tribal Gaming Supporter Backs Away

Sponsored by:

State Senator Jim Battin is backing away from his offers to promote tribal gambling – an issue Battin oversees as a full-time state lawmaker. Battin and several partners offered to coordinate advertising campaigns promoting tribal casinos.

Battin is one of the Legislature┬┤s most vocal supporters of Indian gambling. The Republican from La Quinta says a deluge of criticism convinced him not to accept private business from tribes.

Battin is a member of the committee that considers card room and horse racing legislation, and serves on a select committee on horse racing. Battin says he will continue to accept non-gambling related business through the firm he started to provide income beyond the 99-thousand dollars he earns as a legislator.
