the governor of Maine

Gov. Janet Mills’ offer of a compromise on tribal sovereignty provoked a heated Friday feud with a Bangor politician, who accused the governor of attempting to derail the project by allowing tribes to oversee new mobile sports betting industry.

On Friday, the language for a potential deal between Mills and tribes was still being worked out, but according to a summary of the proposal obtained by the Bangor Daily News from the Democratic governor’s office, federally recognized tribes in Maine would be the only ones eligible for mobile sports betting licenses. Casinos that have been looking for a way to make money would be shut down. Mills vetoed a sports betting bill in 2020, citing concerns about gambling expansion in the state.
