The Karuk Tribe is still waiting on lawmakers in California to ratify its Class III gaming compact.

SB 1224, which ratifies the compact, was due to be read for a third time in the Senate on Monday, The Siskiyou Daily News reported. But it never came up for discussion, the paper said.

The compact was signed last December. It authorizes up to 1,500 slot machines and requires the tribe to share 10 percent of the net win if more than 350 devices are in operation.

The tribe is planning to build a casino in two phases. The first phase calls for a 36,497 square-foot facility with 500 gaming devices and a 120-seat restaurant. A second phase will include a hotel
