Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Wednesday

Council could set casino vote

The Elk Grove City Council may vote Wednesday night to set a June 6 date for a referendum on its plan to allow the Wilton Rancheria Indian tribe to build a casino and hotel on 36 acres off Highway 99. The fate of Elk Grove’s proposed Indian casino remained uncertain after city officials, receiving mixed signals from the federal government, postponed a decision Jan. 25 on scheduling a voter referendum aimed at thwarting the $400 million project. The council meets at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 8400 Laguna Palms Way. Go to http://sacb.ee/8EoZ for more information.
