Comment on California Tribal Gaming Growing Despite Adversity, Trade Chair James Siva Says by Gordon

With these two sentences, maybe Tribe’s should consider the public is getting tired of expanded gaming, rather than using the excuse considerable funding was spent to defeat 27: “Proposition 26, a tribal-backed measure that would have allowed retail sports betting at tribal casinos and state-licensed race tracks, also failed, with just 33% support. However, tribal gaming nations raised $237 million and spent most of that to ensure Prop 27’s defeat.”

If tribe’s can expend nearly a quarter of a billion on defeating a measure, than why do they need more income? And, note that only a fraction of the tribes, including gaming tribe’s, make high revenue, it is limited to only a few.
