Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has reaffirmed that his office remains opposed to efforts by the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma to obtain federal approval for building a casino in Park City.
Schmidt sent a letter Thursday to U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar saying that the office remains opposed to tribe's application to take the Park City land into a federal gaming trust.
The previous Attorney General, Steve Six had opposed it last year.
"It remains our position that the Wyandotte Nation's two land-into-trust requests exceed Congressional intent and authority," Schmidt wrote in the letter.
