The Spokane City Council has dropped its opposition to a casino planned by the Spokane Tribe near Fairchild Air Force Base.
The council switched its position Monday to neutral — neither for nor against. Two years ago the council voted to oppose the project because some officials feared it would adversely affect the air base and make it a target for closure.
The casino still needs federal approval and the consent of the Washington governor.
An agent from the FBI headquarters has been named the acting special agent in charge of the Seattle division. The FBI said Monday that W. Jay Abbott will lead the division until a permanent replacement is named.
He takes over after the abrupt retirement on Feb. 17 of Laura Laughlin who led the Seattle office for 10 years.
Abbott had been acting deputy assistant director of the Criminal Justice Information Services Division at FBI headquarters. The special agent in charge of the Seattle office is also responsible for nine other offices in Washington.
