AB 1960, as introduced, Mayes. Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund.
Existing law creates in the State Treasury the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund for the receipt and deposit of moneys received by the state from certain Indian tribes pursuant to the terms of tribal-state gaming compacts entered into with the state. Existing law authorizes moneys in that fund to be used for specified purposes, including for grants for the support of state and local government agencies impacted by tribal government gaming. Existing law, until January 1, 2021, establishes the method of calculating the distribution of appropriations from the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund for those grants to local government agencies impacted by tribal gaming, and requires the Department of Finance, in consultation with the California Gambling Control Commission, to calculate and provide a recommendation regarding the total revenue in the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund that will be available for the current budget year for local government agencies.
This bill would appropriate $13 million from the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund to the California Gambling Control Commission to provide grants to local agencies for the 2020–21 fiscal year, as described above.
