Davis and Tribes In Formal Talks

Sponsored by:

Formal negotiations begin on renegotiating California´s Indian gambling compacts. Governor Davis wants $1.5 billion dollars from tribes´ profits to help with the state´s budget shortfall. But even tribes that are willing to contribute say that figure is unrealistically high. Others reject the idea outright. Of the state´s 109 federally recognized tribes, 61 tribes now operate 51 casinos – with more on the way. Another 36 tribes have said they want gambling compacts. Davis´ negotiating team met with representatives of about 25 tribes that have formed a coalition and offered to work cooperatively with the governor.
