Legislation And The Ongoing Story Of California Tribal Casinos

Who hasn't got an opinion on California tribal casinos? Some people who couldn't tell a game of Blackjack from a game of Poker amazingly will know everything there is to know especially when politics are involved. That's one game in their own eyes, they are an expert at!

Back in the mid 80's two California tribal casinos were at serious loggerheads with the state of California. Feeling that they had been unfairly treated they decided to take them to court. Who could imagine anyone taking the state of California to court? Well that's what happened.

In 1987 the US Supreme court made its ruling, and did it ever set the cat amongst the pigeons! They set in motion the might of their political wheels with what would be ongoing actions to expand Indian run casinos, with such far reaching consequences that these Californian gaming operations would outrank all but the state of Nevada, producing a tidy little turnover along the way.

It's probably fair to say some people conclude that the Federal Government had a better grasp of the bigger picture. They weren't going to cook the goose that lays the golden egg and shut down money making operations like the state wanted, even if California was more concerned that their previous rules of enforcement for these tribal casinos had been well and truly driven out of the park, and they weren't having it all their own way.

The California tribal casinos revenue figures later released in 2006 were announced to be equal to all other gaming sectors in the state added all together and things have moved ahead with more co-operation being in evidence at least from the outside looking in.

Payments are now made to the state from yearly tribal revenues, with the recognition from the state that the majority of funds raised are for the development of their own people's health service infrastructure along with roads, transportation and the likes. Is everything moving in the right direction? The answer would depend on who was asked the question perhaps.
