North Fork Rancheria gaming compact due for final hearing

A Class III gaming compact for the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians gets its final hearing in the California Senate today.

The compact authorizes an off-reservation casino on a 305-acre site in Madera County. It passed the Assembly earlier this month but only with the minimum number of votes.

The Senate Governmental Organization Committee will take up the compact at 1:30pm. If the Legislature ratifies the compact, it can be sent to the Bureau of Indian Affairs for review.
