Concurrence Compact Press Release
One Step Closer!
On August 31, 2012, California Governor Jerry Brown officially concurred with the September 1, 2011 U.S. Department of the Interior/Bureau of Indian Affairs’ (DOI/BIA) favorable “two-part” determination on the Estom Yumeka Maidu Tribe of the Enterprise Rancheria proposed gaming project in Yuba County. Governor Brown’s concurrence allows our Tribe to move forward with its federal application to acquire new Indian trust land for gaming.
The Governor also announced the signing of a tribal-state gaming compact with the Enterprise Rancheria. The compact, which will benefit over 800 tribal citizens, is an agreement between the state and Enterprise relating to how our Tribe will conduct tribal gaming. The compact must still be ratified by the State Legislature and reviewed and approved by the federal government.
Please see the attached ER Concurrence Compact Press Release of 8/31/12 . Additional information is available on the Governor’s web site at www.gov.ca.gov.
