Interior Department approves Madera Co Casino

FRESNO, Calif.

On Friday the Interior Department gave approval for the proposed Indian casino about four miles north of Madera on Highway 99 near Road 23 and Avenue 18.When completed it would hold 2,500 machines and a 200 room hotel.

But construction can't begin yet. The tribe still needs Governor Brown to sign off on the plan. He has up to a year to make a decision.
