tribal igaming

Rep. Lou Correa of California has introduced a bill in the US House of Representatives. He claims that it will “clarify” the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act’s (IGRA) definition of tribal lands in cyberspace.

Further, Correa’s HR 4308, cosponsored by Rep. John Katko defines internet gambling as “tribal” if they conduct it through servers located on Native American lands.

Correa indirectly responded in the Congressional Record, saying, “I am introducing this bill to clarify the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act and will make clear what the congressional drafters would have done in 1988 had the internet been available at the time.”

Furthermore, he claimed that HR 4308 would “eliminate frivolous litigation” and that it does not authorize tribal igaming in areas where it does not currently exist. Correa continued that the goal was to put Native American igaming on the same legal footing as brick-and-mortar tribal casinos.
