RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina's governor has signed legislation allowing an American Indian tribe to offer sports and horse wagering at its two casinos.
The measure letting the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians offer the betting passed by a wide margin in both legislative chambers earlier in the year.
Gov. Roy Cooper's office announced Friday that the gaming measure was among more than a dozen pieces of legislation he signed. The law takes effect with Cooper's signature.
