AB 1750: Amending the Revenue Sharing Fund-Governor's signing message.pdf
This bill addresses the first priority of the Special Distribution Fund (SDF), which is to ensure that each Non-Compact Indian Tribe receives $1.1 million annually from the Indian Gaming Revenue Sharing Trust Fund (RSTF).
AB 1750: Oppose as currently written
The formula for disbursement of the Special Distribution Fund (SDF) and the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund (RSTF) reveals a crisis in how these funds are used and abused. Where is the funding for providing effective state regulatory oversight of a 19.5 billion dollar and growing industry of which California tribal governments are the major players? The 1999 gaming compacts promise such oversight, for which the public has a reasonable expectation, but the Legislature has, thus far declined to provide adequate funding.
