Statement from CNIGA Chairman James Siva on the Withdrawal of “Tribal Gaming Protection Act” and “The Sports Wagering Regulation and Tribal Gaming Protection Act.”

January 23, 2024

“We are pleased that in the face of widespread tribal opposition, the backers of two initiatives have kept their word and withdrawn what we could only regard as a cynical attempt to legalize sports wagering and online betting in California. These initiatives attempted to use tribes’ good names to cleanse illegal off-shore, online gambling corporations with an appalling track record of malfeasance.

Let this failure also be a warning to others that seek to dubiously enter the California gaming market. Using tribes for your own gain will get you nowhere.”
