“This new gaming compact emphasizes the ongoing commitment and support from the State for our Tribe’s economic success and, in return, the Corning community,” said Alejandre. “This compact will support our ongoing goals of economic growth, job creation and community support.” The state legislature ratified the tribal-state gaming compact in September with overwhelming support, passing unanimously on both the Assembly and Senate Floors. The Tribe received valuable commitment and support from Senator Jim Nielsen and Assemblyman James Gallagher which proved to be the key leadership needed for a unanimous vote within the State legislature. “The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians are good neighbors,” said Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama). “They are generous in helping to improve healthcare in our community, and in providing help to the people of the region who have been displaced by the recent devastating wildfires. Another very special thing about the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians is that they experienced their own ‘trail of tears’ many, many years ago. They did not let that deter them from passing on their culture and heritage, through their generations of striving and prospering in this new site. They’re well-settled, and they are a tribe that keeps their own.” “I am pleased with the new compact secured by the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians. The new agreement provides extended certainty for the Tribe as they continue to provide critical resources, such as much needed healthcare services, for their members and the community at large. I appreciate the Tribal Council’s commitment to Tehama County and look forward to helping build upon their many successes,” said Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City). Additionally, the compact reflects the tribe’s commitment to share revenue with non-gaming and limited gaming tribes through the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund and the Tribal Nation Grant Fund. This commitment allows the economic benefits of gaming to extend to all tribal governments in California.
