    Agency’s implicit OK opens way for tribe’s Taunton, Mass., casino

    BOSTON — The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe has been given a green light to pursue a casino in Massachusetts after the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs opted not to intervene on a revised casino compact with the state.
    The bureau had rejected an earlier agreement, saying the state’s share of gambling revenue was too high and would violate the spirit of federal Indian gambling law that calls for casino profits to primarily benefit members of a tribe.
