Notice of Approval of Class III Tribal Gaming Ordinances

AGENCY: National Indian Gaming Commission.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The purpose of this notice is to inform the public of class 
III gaming ordinances approved by the Chairman of the National Indian 
Gaming Commission.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This notice is effective upon date of publication in 
the Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Frances Fragua, Office of General 
Counsel at the National Indian Gaming Commission, 202/632-7003, or by 
facsimile at 202/632-7066 (not toll-free numbers).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) 25 
U.S.C. 2701 et seq., was signed into law on October 17, 1988. The IGRA 
established the National Indian Gaming Commission (Commission). Section 
2710 of the IGRA authorizes the Commission to approve class II and 
class III tribal gaming ordinances. Section 2710(d)(2)(B) of the IGRA 
as implemented by 25 CFR section 522.8 (58 FR 5811 (January 22, 1993)) 
requires the Commission to publish, in the Federal Register, approved 
class III gaming ordinances.
    The IGRA requires all tribal gaming ordinances to contain the same 
requirements concerning ownership of the gaming activity, use of net 
revenues, annual audits, health and safety, background investigation 
and licensing of key employees. The Commission, therefore, believes 
that publication of each ordinance in the Federal Register would be 
redundant and result in unnecessary cost to the Commission. The 
Commission believes that publishing a notice of approval of each class 
III gaming ordinance is sufficient to meet the requirements of 25 
U.S.C. section 2710(d)(2)(B). Every approved gaming ordinance is posted 
on the Commission's Web site ( under Reading Room, 
Gaming Ordinances. Also, the Commission will make copies of approved 
class III ordinances available to the public upon request. Requests can 
be made in writing to the Office of General Counsel, National Indian 
Gaming Commission (Attention: Frances Fragua), 1441 L Street, NW., 
Suite 9100, Washington, DC 20005.
