Given the significant unanswered questions and the lack of consultation as recommended by Executive Order 13175 which calls for "meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in the development of Federal policies that have tribal implications," I urge you to open a formal rulemaking process to resolve these outstanding issues prior to implementing this new policy.

The current leadership of the Enterprise Tribe has des-enrolled long-standing members of the Enterprise Rancheria.

The current tribal government is seriously impacted by the Carcieri v. Salazar U. S. Supreme Court Ruling.

March 2009: Assembly Member Dan Logue
"Even more importantly, it was the understanding of the electorate in 2000 when Proposition 1A passed, that gaming was to remian on "Indian Lands" as implied on the ballot measure. The mood of the State Legislature has not been favorable to reservation shopping, and there are real questions as to whether a tribal state compact would be ratified in this case. "
