A Tribal Casino For Yreka?

Buster Atteberry and Jaclyn Goodwin of the Karuk Tribe describe the casino plan for Yreka.

While a pair of Native American tribes spent much of the last year squabbling over a plan for a casino in Medford, a third tribe quietly laid the groundwork for a different casino in nearby Yreka.

And the Karuk Tribe got a further boost when California's governor signed a compact with the tribe, a key step toward locating the casino. 

Tribal chair Buster Attebery joins us to detail the plan.
