Governor Signs Compact With The Pinoleville Pomo Nation


8-8-2011

SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced he has signed a tribal-state gaming compact between the State of California and the Pinoleville Pomo Nation.

The compact funds programs in local communities that mitigate the impact of gaming activities and address gambling addiction. It includes provisions to protect employees and patrons, and measures that the tribe must take to protect the environment during the construction and operation of gaming facilities.

The compact allows the operation of a maximum of 900 slot machines. Up to 15 percent of the casino's net win from them will go to local communities and gambling mitigation and regulation provisions. The compact requires regular audits of gaming operations, and supersedes the 2009 compact between the tribe and the State of California.
