To establish Federal standards and regulations for the conduct of gambling activities within Indian country, and for other purposes.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
NOVEMBER 18, 1983
Mr. UDALL (for himself, Mr. MCNULTY, and Mr. MCCAIN) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs
To establish Federal standards and regulations for the conduct
of gambling activities within Indian country, and for other purposes.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representa
2 tives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
3 That this Act may be cited as the "Indian Gambling Control 4 Act".
(2) Federal courts have held that Indian tribes.
have the exclusive right to regulate gambling activity
which is not prohibited by Federal law and which is conducted within a State which does not, as a matter
5 of public policy, prohibit such gambling activity;
(3) some Indian tribes have expressed concern about their ability to continue to regulate or operate gambling activities free from the influence of organized crime, racketeers, professional gamblers, and those who would defraud or otherwise attempt to exert corrupt influence upon them;
(4) existing Federal law does not provide clear standards or regulations necessary to insure the orderly conduct of gambling activities within Indian country;
(5) a principal goal of Federal Indian policy is to promote tribal economic development, tribal self-sufficiency, and strong tribal governments; and
(6) tribal operation and licensing of gambling activities is a legitimate means of generating revenues for governmental operations and programs.
SEC. 3. Congress hereby declares that the establishment 22 of Federal standards for gambling activities in Indian country 23 is necessary to meet the concerns which have been raised 24 about such activities and to protect such activities as a means 25 of generating needed tribal revenues.
