WASHINGTON (AP) — Native American tribes said Thursday they want their share of the jobs and revenue if online gambling is allowed in the U.S, but they don't want to lose their sovereignty to get it.

Internet gambling has been prohibited in the U.S. since 2006, which has sent fans and their money to sites based offshore. With Congress searching for money to cut the deficit and create new jobs, supporters see an opening for legalizing at least some online gambling.

Should Congress act, the federal government will have to write rules and will likely collect taxes from proceeds. Native American tribes want the federal government to ensure they are allowed to operate, regulate, tax and license online gambling as well......

They also had a hearing today in florida whether or not to legalize gambling with the big players from Vegas flying in. The indian casinos are strongly against it as they have created a monopoly. I hope that they do legalize it.
