Governor Wants Limits On Gambling

Sponsored by:

Governor Schwarzenegger asked Congress Tuesday to retain state limits on a new class of gambling machines that — if unregulated — would hurt his demand for a share of gaming profits to help control California´s deficit.

He says proposed amendments to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act hurt the state´s ability to protect citizens from the consequences of tribal gambling.

He particularly objects to letting tribes operate a new class of gambling machines without requiring them to first negotiate a compact with states. Schwarzenegger is holding out the possibility of letting tribes operate more slot machines in return for a state share of the profits.

Officials of the California Nations Indian Gaming Association are not immediately commenting.
