       AB 1267 (Hall)
       As Amended  April 29, 2013
       2/3 vote.  Urgency 

        SUMMARY  :  Ratifies the amendment to a tribal-state gaming compact  
       entered into between the State of California (State) and the Shingle  
       Springs Band of Miwok Indians (Tribe), executed on November 15, 2012.   
       Specifically,  this bill  :

       1)Creates the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Trust Fund in the  
         State Treasury (Trust Fund) as a special purpose trust fund, to be  
         administered by the California Gambling Control Commission (CGCC),  
         for the receipt and deposit of revenue payments received by the  
         State from the Tribe pursuant to the amended tribal-state gaming  
         compact ratified by this measure and any trust fund agreement  
         executed by the State and the Tribe pursuant to this tribal-state  
         gaming compact, as specified.

       2)Appropriates, continuously, from the Trust Fund to the CGCC the  
         amount necessary for specific purposes enumerated in the  
         tribal-state gaming compact and trust fund agreement, including  
         governmental operations of the Tribe and reduction of the Tribe's  
         existing debt related to its gaming facility.  Provides for the  
         termination of the Trust Fund on January 1, 2016, or another date,  
         as specified. 

       3)Provides for the transfer of the amount of revenue payments made by  
         the Tribe to the State during the period between July 1, 2012, and  
         the date the amended tribal-state gaming compact ratified by this  
         measure becomes effective, from the General Fund to the Trust Fund  
         as an initial deposit pursuant to the terms of that tribal-state  
         gaming compact and any trust fund agreement.

       4)Provides that, in deference to tribal sovereignty, certain actions  
         may not be deemed projects for purposes of the California  
         Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).  

       5)Contains an urgency clause, allowing the bill to take effect  
         immediately upon enactment.

        EXISTING LAW  :

       1)Provides, under the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA), for  








                                                               AB 1267

         the negotiation and conclusion of compacts between federally  
         recognized Indian tribes and the state for the purpose of conducting  
         Class III gaming activities on Indian lands within a state as a  
         means of promoting tribal economic development, self-sufficiency,  
         and strong tribal governments.  Existing law expressly authorizes a  
         number of tribal-state gaming compacts between the State and  
         specified Indian tribes. 

       2)Authorizes the conduct of Class III gaming activities to the extent  
         such activities are permitted by state law, a gaming compact has  
         been concluded by a federally recognized tribe and the state, and  
         the compact has been approved by the Secretary of the Interior.  

       3)Limits, under IGRA, the operation of Class III gaming activities to  
         Indian lands acquired on or before October 17, 1988.  Existing law  
         also provides for certain exceptions to conduct gaming activities on  
         Indian lands acquired after October 17, 1988.


       4)Defines, under IGRA, Indian lands to mean all lands within the  
         limits of any Indian reservation, and any lands title to which is  
         either held in trust by the United States for the benefit of any  
         Indian tribe or individual or held by any Indian tribe or individual  
         subject to restriction by the United States against alienation and  
         over which an Indian tribe exercises governmental power.

       5)Requires, under IGRA, the state to negotiate to conclude a compact  
         in good faith with an Indian tribe having jurisdiction over the  
         Indian lands upon which the Class III gaming activity is to be  
         conducted.  Existing law also provides the United States district  
         courts with jurisdiction over any cause of action initiated by a  
         tribal government alleging that the state failed to negotiate in  
         good faith to conclude a compact.  Furthermore, existing law  
         prescribes the remedy, mediation supervised by the courts, if it is  
         found that the state failed to negotiate in good faith to conclude a  
         compact.  

       6)Authorizes the Governor, under the California Constitution, to  
         negotiate and conclude compacts, subject to ratification by the  
         Legislature.

                                                               AB 1267

       Organization Committee conducted an informational hearing on the  
       contents of this amended Compact.

        1)Summary  :  The amended Tribal-State Gaming Compact between the State  
         and the Tribe, located in El Dorado County, California, was executed  
         on November 15, 2012.  The amended Compact is intended to help the  
         Tribe continue funding programs in local communities that mitigate  
         the impact of gaming activities and address gambling addiction.  The  
         amended Compact allows the operation of 3,000 gaming devices until  
         2020 when it increases to 4,000 machines - the existing 2008 Compact  
         authorizes the Tribe to operate a maximum of 5,000 gaming devices at  
         its Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs.  Beginning in 2015, the  
         Tribe will pay to the State 15% of the casino's Net Win, less  
         temporary credits, as explained in greater detail below.  The  
         amended Compact requires regular audits of gaming operations and  
         supersedes both the 1999 Shingle Springs Compact and the 2008  
         amended Compact (collectively referred to as the "original  
         Compact"), which were ratified by the Legislature.  Once effective,  
         this amended Compact will be in full force and effect for state law  
         purposes until June 30, 2032.  
        
         2)Background on the Compact and the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok  
         Indians  :  The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians is an  
         approximately 500-member federally recognized tribe located on  
         160-acres in El Dorado County.  The Tribe operates the Red Hawk  
         Casino, which officially opened in December of 2008.  Currently, the  
         Tribe offers over 2,250 gaming devices, table games, a poker room  
         and a Bingo area, including several restaurants and bars within the  
         casino facility.  

         The Tribe's original Compact with the State was executed in 1999 but  
         the Tribe was never able to construct a casino pursuant to the terms  
         of that Compact due to the length of time required to obtain  
         pre-development entitlements and subsequent litigation related to  
         the pre-development entitlements.  On June 30, 2008, former Governor  
         Schwarzenegger and the Tribe concluded the first set of amendments  
         to the original Compact that was initially executed in 1999.  

         The 2008 Compact amendments, among other things, significantly  
         increased the gaming facility's earning potential and revenue  
         payments to the State.  Prior to 2008, the Tribe spent several years  
         and significant resources in developing a gaming facility that would  
         provide a revenue stream to improve the environment, educational  
         status, and the health, safety and general welfare of the Tribe's  








                                                               AB 1267
                                                               Page  4


         members.  Since the time that the State and the Tribe entered into  
         the 2008 amended Compact, circumstances in the economy and market  
         competition changed, which caused and continue to cause, a  
         substantial reduction in revenues generated at the casino in  
         comparison to those that were anticipated.

         The Compact's preamble indicates that the Tribe should be the  
         primary beneficiary of the casino, but since the opening of the  
         gaming facility, the State and other government entities have  
         received payments from the Tribe that far exceed the amount that the  
         Tribe has received for tribal governmental operations or to  
         otherwise meet the basic needs of its tribal citizens.

         The Governor's office affirms that after review of the Tribes  
         financial situation, the Tribe and the State agree that if the Tribe  
         continues to pay revenue to the State pursuant to the terms of the  
         2008 amended Compact then the positive impact of the Tribe's  
         investment would not be fully realized and the Tribe would not  
         materially benefit from the casino.  Additionally, the gaming  
         facility itself would not be economically viable.

         The Compact's preamble contends that while the Tribe has met all of  
         its financial obligations to the State pursuant to the 2008 amended  
         compact, the Tribe maintains that its casino cannot currently or in  
         the coming years generate enough revenue for the Tribe to cover its  
         financial obligations related to the gaming facility, including its  
         operating expenses, payments to State and local government entities,  
         notes that come due in the year 2015, and amounts owed to its  
         management company, and other financial obligations.

         In order for the Tribe to be successful in improving its fiscal  
         condition and meeting its short and long-term financial obligations,  
         the State and the Tribe agree that the Tribe must not only change  
         the structure of the Tribe's payment obligations to the State, but  
         must also seek, and obtain, restructuring of its respective  
         financial arrangements with local governments and the Tribe's  
         primary creditors.  In November 2012, the Tribe signed a revised  
         Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and Intergovernmental Agreement  
         with El Dorado County (see below).

         The Tribe and the State agree that this amended Compact is designed  
         to:  a) enhance the Tribe's economic development and  
         self-sufficiency; b) protect the interests of the Tribe and its  
         members, the surrounding community, and the California public; and,  








                                                               AB 1267

         c) promote and secure long-term stability, mutual respect, and  
         mutual benefits.

        3)Revenue Provisions of the Amended Compact Include  :
        
           Revenue Contribution  :  The Tribe shall pay to the State 15% of Net  
         Win generated from the operation of the Tribe's gaming devices.   
         However, in recognition of significant predevelopment and  
         development costs incurred by the Tribe in relation to its gaming  
         facility and other fiscal challenges, the State and the Tribe have  
         agreed to specified payment terms during the duration of the  
         Compact.  

         The amended Compact provides a three-phased procedure for the  
         restructuring of the Tribe's debt and obligations:  a) Phase 1 (July  
         1, 2012 - June 30, 2015) is referred to as the "Restructuring  
         Period;" b) Phase 2 (July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2020) is referred to as  
         the  "Repositioning Period;" and, c) Phase 3 (July 1, 2020 - June  
         30, 2032).  

          Restructuring Period (Phase 1):  From July 1, 2012, through June 30,  
         2015, the Tribe shall make no revenue contributions that are payable  
         to the State's General Fund, instead during this phase the Tribe  
         will transmit to the State the same amounts it would have paid under  
         the 2008 Compact (20% - 25% of Net Win) and those payments will be  
         directed to the Trust Fund, which is created as part of this amended  
         Compact.  The Tribe will make revenue payments under the 2008  
         Compact terms until it restructures or refinances financial  
         obligations with the El Dorado County and management company, as  
         defined.  The Trust Fund exists for the duration of the  
         restructuring period and can be terminated early or extended by  
         written agreement between the Tribe and the State, as specified.

         Additionally, the Trust Fund is continuously appropriated to the  
         CGCC which is charged with administering it.  Distributions shall be  
         made by the CGCC for the governmental operations of the Tribe,  
         including, tribal administration, health care, education, and  
         economic development.  Furthermore, the Trust Fund is to assist the  
         Tribe in reducing its existing debt including the payment of  
         reasonable costs in connection with refinancing or restructuring its  
         debt load, terminating its management agreement, as defined, and any  
         related litigation or administrative proceedings resulting from its  
         current difficulties.

           Repositioning Period (Phase 2):   From July 1, 2015, through June 30,  
         2020, the Tribe shall be obligated to pay to the State 15% of Net  
         Win generated from the operation of the Tribe's gaming devices.

           ----------------------------------------------------------------- 

          Phase 3  :  From July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2032, the Tribe will  
         be obligated to pay to the State 15% of the Net Win generated from  
         the operation of the Tribe's gaming devices for deposit into the  
         General Fund, as specified in the amended compact.  The Tribe shall  
         receive a credit for payments made to the Special Distribution Fund  
         (SDF).
          
           SDF  :  The Tribe agrees to pay its pro-rata share of reasonable state  
         regulatory costs and other obligations agreed to by the State under  
         the amended Compact.  (The Tribe receives a credit for payments made  
         to the SDF.)

          Payments to the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund (RSTF) or the Tribal  
         Nation Grant Fund  :  The Tribe shall pay into the RSTF or the Tribal  
         Nation Grant Fund, for distribution to Non-Gaming and Limited-Gaming  
         Tribes an amount equal to 3% of the Net Win.  The "RSTF" is a fund

         created by the Legislature for the benefit of Non-Gaming Tribes and  
         Limited-Gaming Tribes.  The "Tribal Nation Grant Fund" is a fund,  
         that once created by the Legislature, may make discretionary  
         distribution of funds to Non-Gaming Tribes and Limited-Gaming Tribes  
         upon application of such tribes for purposes related to effective  
         self-governance, self-determined community, and economic  
         development.

          Meaningful Concessions  :  The Tribe agrees that the State is giving a  
         "meaningful concession" to it in that the Tribe's revenue sharing  
         payments will be significantly reduced over the term of the amended  
         Compact, and the State has agreed to assist the Tribe in achieving a  
         significant reduction in the debt associated with the Tribe's  
         casino.  

          Renegotiation of Terms with Creditors  :  The amended Compact requires  
         the Tribe to enter into the following written agreements with terms  
         and conditions that will materially improve the Tribe's financial  
         condition or otherwise provide such financial concessions as  
         necessary to implement the intent of the amended Compact:  a) with  
         the County of El Dorado - for restructuring the amounts and  
         application of the local government payments made by the Tribe to  
         the County; b) with Lakes Entertainment Inc., the Tribe's casino  
         management company - for the restructuring of the debt the Tribe  
         owes the company (due no later than December 31, 2015); and, c)  
         within four years from the effective date of the amended Compact,  
         the Tribe must enter into written agreements that effectuate a  
         refinancing or a restructuring of the bond debt.

         The Tribe is required to present evidence to the Governor that the  
         written agreements referenced above have been executed and the  
         Governor must determine whether such agreements and other supporting  
         materials satisfy the amended Compact terms and conditions.  If the  
         Tribe satisfactorily complies with the conditions of repositioning  
         its financial commitments to major creditors, the Tribe may apply  
         the amended revenue contributions, as detailed in the amended  
         Compact.  If not, the Tribe will be required to revert back to the  
         2008 Compact terms.
        
        4)Other Key Provisions of the Amended Compact  :

          Authorized Class III Gaming  :  In addition to any Class II games, the  
         Tribe is authorized to operate gaming devices (slot machines),  
         banking or percentage card games, and any devices or games that are  








                                                               AB 1267
                                                               Page  8


         authorized under state law to the California State Lottery.  The  
         Tribe may not operate roulette games (table or mechanical) or any  
         game that incorporates the physical use of a die or dice.  The Tribe  
         shall not engage in Class III Gaming that is not expressly  
         authorized in the amended Compact.

          Authorized Facilities and Number of Gaming Devices  :  The Tribe is  
         entitled to operate up to a total of 3,000 gaming devices through  
         June 30, 2020, and after that date the Tribe is entitled to operate  
         an additional 1,000 gaming devices, up to a total of 4,000 gaming  
         devices.  The Tribe is currently authorized to operate up to 5,000  
         gaming devices but only has approximately 2,250 in operation.  The  
         Tribe may establish and operate not more than one gaming facility  
         within the boundaries of the Shingle Springs Rancheria, as those  
         boundaries existed as of January 1, 2007, located in El Dorado  
         County, as legally described in the amended Compact.

          Exclusivity  :  Provides for the exclusive right to conduct Class III  
         gaming.  In the event the exclusive right to operate Class III  
         gaming is lost and/or other non-Indian entities legally are able to  
         engage in Class III gaming in California, the Tribe shall have the  
         right to terminate this amended Compact and cease gaming activities.  
          The Tribe may choose to continue to operate under this amended  
         Compact with an entitlement to reduce specified Revenue  
         Contributions as specified in the amended Compact.  

          Local Agreements  :  In November 2012, the Tribe signed a revised MOU  
         and Intergovernmental Agreement with El Dorado County (County).  The  
         amended MOU reallocates certain amounts currently paid by the Tribe  
         to the County to certain other mutually agreed upon uses.  In lieu  
         of making the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Payment to build carpool  
         lanes on Highway 50 near the casino as required under the previous  
         MOU (September 28, 2006), the Tribe will make one payment annually  
         of $5.2 million to the County for the duration of the agreement to  
         be used by the County for public improvements located within the  
         designated boundaries as specified, including, but without  
         limitation, to road improvements and/or maintenance ("Qualifying  
         Public Improvements").  The HOV lanes were thought to be needed to  
         alleviate a dramatic increase in traffic by officials.  The traffic  
         did not materialize.  And then the federal government offered  
         stimulus money for the same roadwork.

         The MOU also takes into consideration the increased expenses to the  
         Tribe's health program for caring for non-Indian citizens of the  








                                                               AB 1267
                                                               Page  9


         County.  The County shall pay the Tribe an annual contribution of  
         $2.6 million to be applied to the Tribe's health programs that  
         service both tribal and non-members and may be used for, among other  
         things, behavioral health services, outreach services, dental care  
         services, insurance costs and reimbursement of medical expenses.   
         The County is not obligated to make such payment before the Tribe  
         makes its Qualifying Public Improvements payment.  Each July 1  
         thereafter, the Tribe shall submit to the County an annual written  
         summary detailing the expenditures made with the funds from the  
         Qualifying Healthcare Contribution.

          Patron Protections  :  The Tribe agrees to binding arbitration before  
         a single arbitrator, who shall be a retired judge, for disputes over  
         patron injuries and gambling, as specified. 

          Environmental Protections  :  The Tribe is required to prepare a  
         Tribal Environmental Impact Report (TEIR) prior to initiating a  
         development project for a facility, to measure off-reservation  
         environmental impacts including an evaluation of energy consumption.  
          A completed TEIR shall be filed with the County, the Department of  
         Justice, and the State Clearinghouse.  In the event that no  
         agreement on mitigation is reached, either party may demand binding  
         arbitration.  Failure to prepare an adequate TEIR when required may  
         warrant an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief where  
         appropriate.

          Labor Provisions  :  If the Tribe employs 250 or more persons in a  
         tribal casino facility, then the provisions of the Tribal Labor  
         Relations Ordinance (TLRO) become effective.  The TLRO provides for  
         a secret ballot election.  The Tribe reached a labor agreement with  
         UNITE HERE International Union in July 2008.
          
         Employee Protections  :  The Tribe has granted employees the right to  
         collectively bargain.  The Tribe has agreed to participate in the  
         state's worker's compensation system and unemployment insurance  
         program, to comply with federal and state occupational health and  
         safety standards, and to consent to the jurisdiction of the state  
         agencies and courts enforcing all of those standards.  The Tribe  
         also has agreed to enhanced employment discrimination provisions.

          Public and Workplace Liability  :  The Tribe is required to obtain and  
         maintain a commercial general liability insurance policy which  
         provides coverage of no less than $10 million.  The Tribe is not  
         obligated to waive its sovereign immunity with respect to punitive  








                                                               AB 1267
                                                               Page  10


         damages.  However, the Tribe agrees to waive sovereign immunity for  
         claims up to the limit of the insurance policy.  The amended Compact  
         requires the Tribe to prepare a Tort Liability Ordinance stipulating  
         that California Tort Law shall govern claims except for punitive  
         damages.  The ordinance shall provide that the Tribe consents to  
                                  binding arbitration.  If the Tribe fails to prepare a Tort Liability  
         Ordinance, all of California Tort Law applies.  Furthermore, the  
         Tribe agrees that it will participate in the state's unemployment  
         compensation program for providing benefits and unemployment  
         compensation disability benefits to employees at the casino.  The  
         Tribe shall withhold all taxes due to the State, except for Tribal  
         members living on the Tribe's reservation, and forward such amounts  
         to the State.

          Building and Safety Standards  :  The casino must adopt and comply  
         with federal and State workplace and occupational health and safety  
         standards.

          Enhanced Audit and Compliance Review Procedures  :  In addition to  
         providing for an annual independent audit, the compact allows the  
         State to conduct its own annual audit and compact compliance review.

          Inspection of Gaming Devices  :  The amended Compact requires that the  
         software used for the play on a gaming device be tested, approved,  
         and certified by an independent or state governmental gaming test  
         laboratory.  Gaming devices are required to be tested by a gaming  
         test laboratory and the Tribal Gaming Agency (TGA).  The CGCC shall  
         inspect all gaming devices in operation at the casino, including all  
         the software, hardware, and associated equipment and systems that  
         support the operation of the gaming devices, on a random basis four  
         times annually to confirm that they operate and play properly.  The  
         CGCC shall review the Tribe's technical standards, regulations and  
         internal controls applicable to gaming devices.

          Minimum Internal Control Standards (MICS)  :  The amended Compact  
         requires the Tribe to conduct its Gaming Activities pursuant to an  
         internal control system that implements MICS that are no less  
         stringent than specified MICS of the National Indian Gaming  
         Commission (NIGC).  It requires gaming to operate pursuant to a  
         written internal control system that reasonably assures that assets  
         are safeguarded and accountability over assets is maintained,  
         liabilities are properly recorded and contingent liabilities are  
         properly disclosed, financial records are accurate and reliable,  
         transactions are performed in accordance with the Tribe's

         authorization.  Furthermore, it requires the Tribe to contract with  
         an independent certified public accountant (CPA) at least annually,  
         at the Tribe's expense, to verify compliance with the Tribe's  
         written internal control standards.

          Problem Gambling  :  The Tribe must train supervisors and floor  
         employees on identifying and managing problem gambling, include a  
         responsible gaming message in advertising, provide signage and  
         education materials at conspicuous locations aimed at preventing  
         problem gambling, and adopt a code of conduct derived from the  
         American Gaming Association's code. 

          Tobacco  :  The Tribe agrees to provide a non-smoking area in the  
         gaming facility and to utilize a ventilation system throughout the  
         gaming facility that exhausts tobacco smoke to the extent reasonably  
         feasible under state-of-the-art technology existing as of the date  
         of the construction or significant renovation of the gaming  
         facility, and further agrees not to offer or sell tobacco to anyone  
         under 18 years of age.

          Prohibitions Regarding Minors  :  The Tribe shall prohibit persons  
         under the age of 21 years from being present in any room or area in  
         which gaming activities are being conducted unless the person is en  
         route to a nongaming area of the gaming facility, or is employed at  
         the gaming facility in a capacity other than as a gaming employee.
          
         Alcohol Sales  :  Makes it explicit that the purchase, sale, and  
         service of alcoholic beverages shall be subject to state law. 

          Tribal Ownership, Management, and Control of Gaming Operation  :  The  
         gaming operation authorized under this amended Compact shall be  
         owned solely by the Tribe.

          Effective Date  :  The amended Compact is not effective until it is  
         ratified in accordance with state law, and notice of approval by the  
         U.S. Secretary of the Interior is published in the Federal Register.  
          Upon all the necessary approvals, the compact will be valid until  
         June 30, 2032.
