The organisation NCLGS is set to meet during the second week of January to discuss tribal-state relations.
US.- The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) has announced that it will meet on January 10-12 at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. The process of making and renegotiating tribal-state compacts will be a focal point at the Winter Meeting.
The NCLGS said that the agreements negotiated between tribes and state government can have lasting economic, fiscal and social impacts on the tribe, the local area and the state. This specific subject is important as there is Indian gaming in 29 states nationwide.
The addition of sports betting and iGaming will improve the gaming industry for tribes in the US and elevate them to new economic heights. The NCLGS Committee on Indian Gaming will examine the compacting process, the key elements to be debated, and what impacts can be expected among the host tribes and stakeholders.
Indian gaming is best positioned to achieve important goals for communities when legislators and tribal leaders work together in forged partnerships,” said Florida State Senator Perry Thurston, an NCLGS officer who chairs the Committee on Indian Gaming. “That is what we learned in Florida and other states, and that is what we are striving for at NCLGS.”
Tribal casinos to offer sports betting in New York
The Seneca Nation of Indians announced it may soon offer sports betting in its western New York casinos. The tribe would launch operations in lounges in Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Salamanca before 2020. That would let gamblers place their bets for a potential Buffalo Bills (NFL) playoff run.
“We know Buffalo is a sports town,” Seneca Gaming CEO Holly Gagnon told Buffalo Business First. “And, we know it is a very passionate sports town. That’s why we are bringing the (sports betting) lounges to the (New York) casinos.”
