Bipartisan legislation introduced last week would more fairly distribute tax revenue between the state and the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara (MHA) Nation. The Tribes have long sought parity in tax revenue sharing with the state.
The Seneca Nation’s tribal-state compact does not address revenue sharing with New York State beyond year 14, but the panel majority determined Tuesday that the tribe is still obligated to pay the state.
The Michigan legislature voted early Friday to legalize online gaming throughout the state. Now Michigan’s 23 tribal casinos can operate online gambling sites if they secure state authorization through their compacts or become commercial operators through the Michigan Control Board.
