US.- Californian Governor Jerry Brown, announced that he has signed a new tribal-state gaming compact with the Pala Band of Mission Indians. The current terms supersede the 2004 compact between the Californian state and the Pala casino properties.

Under the new agreement, 500 slot machines were added to the 2000 gambling machines that the casino was allowed to have in the prior compact. Jack Taylor, the spokesman of the casino, commented that adding gaming devices is not a priority at the moment, though.

The updated agreement includes terms relating to the development of water conservation projects and health care facilities among other aspects that provide a mutual benefit between the local community and the tribe.

Under the new deal, the Pala Band of Mission Indians will also continue to share revenue with tribal governments that have chosen not to operate casinos.
