SB 1102

Berryhill (R)History

The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to negotiate and conclude compacts, subject to ratification by the Legislature. Current law ratifies a number of tribal-state gaming compacts between the State of California and specified Indian tribes that were executed in 1999. Existing law provides that any other tribal-state gaming compact entered into between the state and a federally recognized Indian tribe that is executed after September 10, 1999, is ratified if it is identical in all material respects to any of the compacts expressly ratified by these provisions and if the compact is not rejected by each house of the Legislature. This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
