11:06 am on 15 August 2007

The Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Governor Benigno Fitial says he's backing casino projects to be on the island of Tinian.

The Saipan Tribune reports the Governor doesn't support a popular initiative for casino gaming on Saipan.

Separate casino initiatives are to be voted on during this midterm election.

To be ratified, each initiative must be approved by at least two thirds of registered voters in the senatorial district where it is proposed.
