Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Giving Local Communities a Voice in Tribal Gaming Act - Amends the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act to prohibit Class III gaming from occurring under a Tribal-State Compact unless the elected governing body and elected executive officials of each political subdivision in which such gaming is to occur have approved the gaming facility.
Gives each political subdivision 120 days after the Tribal-State Compact is approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the National Indian Gaming Commission or the site of the gaming facility is identified, whichever comes later, to object to the facility.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
