NCLGS to Meet Regarding Tribal Gaming Contract Re-negotiations

December 5, 2019

Beginning on January 10, 2020 and ending on January 12, the Winter Meeting of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) will be held at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina in San Diego, California. It's worth noting that the conference is open to the public.

Along with a number of other important topics to be covered by gambling industry representatives from all over the US, there will be a lot of focus put on the renegotiating of tribal gambling contracts that currently exist in 29 states. With the increasing popularity of sports and online casino gambling in many states, the renegotiating process will likely be historic.

Florida is one of the states where Indian Tribes have substantial control over casino gambling within the state's borders. According to Florida state Senator Perry Thurston, an NCLGS chair on the Committee on Indian Gaming:

“Indian gaming is best positioned to achieve important goals for communities when legislators and tribal leaders work together in forged partnerships. That is what we learned in Florida and other states, and that is what we are striving for at NCLGS.”

On a combined basis, US Indian tribes have proudly been reporting annual gambling revenue as high as $34 billion a year. In California alone, the number has reached $9 billion a year. As a point of reference, those numbers do not include anything related to sports betting or any form of online gambling. After factoring in the potential future revenue these forms of gambling figure could generate, it's clear negotiating between Indian tribe representatives and state governments will be fierce.

As part of the conference, the International Masters of Gaming Law (IMGL) will be holding a panel discussion on the legal and regulatory trends of tribal-state gaming compacts throughout the US. Among panel speakers will be attorneys Jonodev O. Chaudhuri, Partner, Quarles & Brady, Jane Zerbi, Principal, Law Office of Jane Zerbi, and Judith A. Shapiro, Esquire, Judith Shapiro Law.

After the conference has concluded, the US gambling industry should have a better idea of what Tribal concerns are going to be regarding the allocation of gaming control and revenue from the aforementioned new forms of gambling. On the state level, state stakeholders in states yet to legalize sports betting and online gambling should have a better idea of what kind of cooperation Indian tribe representatives will be offering during the legislative process in each state.
