SPOKANE, Wash. —

The Spokane Tribe says it would work with the Air Force to reduce land use conflicts if the tribe is allowed to build a casino complex in Airway Heights two miles from the base.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/UJ9y0H) the plans are in the tribe's impact statement, which was posted Thursday online.

County officials worry a new casino would limit the future of the base, the county's largest single employer. The Spokanes' plan also is opposed by the Kalispel Tribe, which already operates a casino in Airway Heights.

The Spokane Tribe needs approval for its casino from the Interior Department and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.
