July 28th Senate Committee on Indian Affairs Oversight Hearing on IGRA Enforcement

The Senate Committee on Indian Affairs has scheduled a legislative oversight hearing on the protection of the enforcement of IGRA. The hearing titled, “Enforcing Indian Gaming Regulatory Act – The Role of the National Indian Gaming Commission and Tribes as Regulators,” is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 28th at 2:15PM in room 628 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.

Witnesses will discuss the state of Indian gaming in the United States, and the role that tribal, federal, and state governments play in regulating Indian gaming operations. Members of the Committee will likely ask questions about the NIGC’s ongoing regulatory review and proposed rules to amend existing federal Indian gaming regulations, application of the Minimum Internal Controls Standards (MICS) to class III Indian gaming, and the Obama Administration’s recent decision to withdraw the Bush Administration commutability guidance with regard to off-reservation gaming.

Witnesses for testimony will be by invitation only, and a list will be posted on the Committee’s website once it is confirmed. However, the Committee will receive written testimony up to two weeks after the hearing date for the record.

The webcast of this hearing will be available on the scheduled hearing date on the Committee website. For more information about the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs please visit: http://indian.senate.gov/
