ABSTRACT
The article reports on the approval of the expansion of tribal gaming in California. The state legislature voted to approve an agreement that would lead to the expansion of tribal gaming. The tribal-state agreement would enable the tribal government to add thousands of slot machines to their casinos which, in turn, increases the state inventory of gambling devices and generate an increased revenue. The ratification of the agreement has been blocked by organized labor.
