CFO Quoted Washburn, Wilkins, and Anderson

Professors Kevin Washburn, David Wilkins (American Indian Studies) and Bob Anderson (’83 alum and a Professor at the University of Washington Law School) were quoted in the cover article in the December issue of CFO magazine that discussed the $22 billion Indian gaming industry. The story also featured a local tribe, the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe and its corporate director, Mel Towle and planner Don Wedll. The article discusses compacting between tribes and states and the revenue sharing agreements between tribes and states that tend to exceed state corporate taxes on non-Indian corporations in the same states. It also discussed Governor Pawlenty’s recent plan for a Twin Cities casino.
