I am writing once again about Hotel’s/Casino’s
Please read the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act below and explain to me why
(Indians off reservations, are allowed to build casinos, off reservations)?
Do not comment on how you just love blowing your money on slot-machines, tell me how or when I can build my casinos?
There was no federal gaming structure before this act.
The stated purposes of the act include providing a legislative basis for the operation/regulation of Indian gaming, protecting gaming
as a means of generating revenue for the tribes, encouraging economic development of these tribes,
and protecting the enterprises from negative influences (such as organized crime).
The law established the National Indian Gaming Commission and gave it a regulatory mandate.
The law also delegated new authority to the U.S. Department of the Interior and created new federal offenses,
giving the U.S. Department of Justice authority to prosecute them.
The law has been the source of extensive controversy and litigation.
One of the key questions is whether the National Indian Gaming Commission and Department of Interior can be effective
in regulating tribal economic decisions related to Indian gaming.
Some in Congress are in favor of greater regulation, while a professor in the field is skeptical that such regulation is effective.
Many of the controversies have produced litigation, some of it reaching the U.S. Supreme Court.
