INDIAN GAMING COMPACTS. REVENUE CONTRIBUTIONS TO STATE, LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. GAMBLING EXPANSION. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Authorizes Governor to seek compact amendments requiring: tribal contributions to state in amount not less than state taxes paid by non-tribal California business conducting lawful gaming; agreement with affected city/county to make payments in lieu of local taxes to mitigate off-reservation gaming impacts; and tribal ordinance recognizing workers' employment rights. If tribe agrees to these provisions, authorizes Governor to agree to up to two casinos and 3,000 slot machines per tribe. If not, tribes are limited to current compact terms or 350 slot machines. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Based on future negotiations with tribes, potentially significant increase of state and local gaming revenues. These revenues could be in the high tens of millions of dollars annually in the foreseeable future.
