NIGC weighs change in handling of management contracts

The National Indian Gaming Commission might change the way it handles management contracts.

The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act requires the agency to approve management contracts between tribes and outside entities. The NIGC conducts a lengthy review under the National Environmental Policy Act as part of this process.

But the agency is asking tribes whether that practice should continue. The issue will be discussed at four upcoming consultation sessions:
March 20, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV
April 2, 2014 in Prior Lake, MN
May 8, 2014 in Biloxi, MS
May 14, 2014 in San Diego, CA

Tribes are also being asked to discuss technologic advances in gaming at the sessions.
