Gaming Talk Heats Up With Native American Tribes, by Greg Tingle - 19th November
American tribes advised Thursday they want their cut of the jobs and revenue if
online gambling is allowed in the United States but they don't want to lose their
sovereignty to get it.
gambling has been prohibited in the U.S. since 2006, which has seen players and
their cash go to to websites and internet portals based offshore. With Congress
searching for money to cut the deficit and create new jobs, supporters see an
opening for legalizing at least some online gambling opportunities.
Congress act, the federal government will have to write rules and will likely
collect taxes from proceeds. Native American tribes want the federal government
to ensure they are allowed to operate, regulate, tax and license online gambling
as well, if they choose to get in on the business.
there is no legislation before the committee right now, one thing we are all aware
of is the need for additional resources at the federal level," said Hawaii
Sen. Daniel Akaka, chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, which held
a hearing Thursday to air tribes' concerns on the issue. "The discussions
surrounding potential Internet gaming legislation have only increased as Congress
looks to the supercommittee to find revenue sources and Congress looks to create
supercommittee Akaka referred to is a bipartisan committee of 12 lawmakers created
this summer to find a plan to reduce government borrowing by least $1.2 trillion
over the next decade. The committee is stalled in part over whether to raise new
House Energy and Commerce subcommittee planned to hold its second hearing Friday
on Internet gambling. There is bipartisan support for at least some Internet gambling.
Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., has pushed for its legalization for years.
there is no Internet gambling bill before the Senate committee, there is legislation
in the House, though it already has opposition from tribal leaders.
Stevens, chairman of the National Indian Gaming Commission, said tribes have united
behind some core principles, including no taxation of tribal revenues. Current
Internet gambling proposals violate those principles, "and we oppose their
passage," Stevens said.
such measure, sponsored by Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, would legalize online poker.
Spokesman Sean Brown said the legislation would allow tribes, like states, to
opt out of allowing Internet gambling if they chose.
at Thursday's hearing expressed concern about proposals to allow the Department
of Commerce to regulate operators of Internet games. Tribal leaders are calling
for the National Indian Gaming Commission to continue to regulate their businesses.
commission reported that last year, 236 tribes operated 422 gambling facilities
in 28 states, generating $27 billion in revenue, evidence that the commission
has the expertise to regulate tribal Internet gambling and won't have to start
from scratch, learning laws particular to tribes as well as cultural considerations,
witnesses at the hearing said.
all tribes support Internet gambling. Some see it as a potential competitor to
their established brick-and-mortar casinos.
Tulalip tribe sees the legalization of Internet gambling as a direct threat to
the economic growth in Indian Country," said Glen Gobin, vice chairman of
the Tulalip Tribes of Tulalip, West Virginia.
you think tribes are going to be able to compete with someone like Harrah's on
Internet gaming?" Gobin asked.
U.S gaming companies including land based casinos
are now starting to adopt online gaming into their
widely believed that the U.S will see legal online gambling up and running soon,
but then again, that's been the world for years, so for much of the gaming industry,
they will believe it when they see it.

United States of America—commonly referred to as the United States, the
U.S., the USA, or America—is a constitutional federal republic comprising
fifty states and a federal district. The country is situated mostly in central
North America, where its forty-eight contiguous states and Washington, D.C., the
capital district, lie between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, bordered by Canada
to the north and Mexico to the south. The state of Alaska is in the northwest
of the continent, with Canada
to its east and Russia
to the west across the Bering Strait, and the state of Hawaii
is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific. The country also possesses several territories,
or insular areas, scattered around the Caribbean
3.79 million square miles (9.83 million km²) and with more than 300 million
people, the United States is the third or fourth largest country by total area,
and third largest by land area and by population. The United States is one of
the world's most ethnically diverse nations, the product of large-scale immigration
from many countries. The U.S. economy is the largest national economy in the world,
with a nominal 2006 gross domestic product (GDP) of more than US$13 trillion (over

nation was founded by thirteen colonies of Great Britain
located along the Atlantic seaboard. On July 4, 1776, they jointly issued the
Declaration of Independence, which proclaimed their independence from Great Britain
and their formation of a cooperative union. The rebellious states defeated Great
Britain in the American Revolutionary War, the first successful colonial war of
independence. A federal convention adopted the current United States Constitution
on September 17, 1787; its ratification the following year made the states part
of a single republic with a strong central government. The Bill of Rights, comprising
ten constitutional amendments guaranteeing many fundamental civil rights and freedoms,
was ratified in 1791.
the nineteenth century, the United States acquired land from France, Spain,
the United Kingdom,
Mexico, and Russia, and annexed the Republic of Texas and the Republic of Hawaii.
Disputes between the agrarian South and industrial North over states' rights and
the expansion of the institution of slavery provoked the American Civil War of
the 1860s. The North's victory prevented a permanent split of the country and
led to the end of legal slavery in the United States. The Spanish-American War
and World War I confirmed the nation's status as a military power. In 1945, the
United States emerged from World War II as the first country with nuclear weapons,
a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, and a founding member
of NATO. In the post–Cold War era, the United States is the only remaining
superpower—accounting for approximately 50% of global military spending—and
a dominant economic, political, and cultural force in the world.
1878, Eadweard Muybridge demonstrated the power of photography to capture motion.
In 1894, the world's first commercial motion picture exhibition was given in New
York City, using Thomas Edison's Kinetoscope. The next year saw the first commercial
screening of a projected film, also in New York, and the United States was in
the forefront of sound film's development in the following decades. Since the
early twentieth century, the U.S. film industry has largely been based in and
around Hollywood, California. Director D. W. Griffith was central to the development
of film grammar and Orson Welles's Citizen Kane (1941) is frequently cited in
critics' polls as the greatest film of all time. American screen actors like John
Wayne and Marilyn Monroe
have become iconic figures, while producer/entrepreneur Walt Disney
was a leader in both animated film and movie merchandising. The major film studios
are the primary source of the most commercially successful movies in the world,
such as Star Wars
(1977) and Titanic (1997), and the products of Hollywood today dominate the global

front of the screen continues to rise, hitting five hours a day in 2006. The four
major broadcast networks are all commercial entities. Americans listen to radio
programming, also largely commercialized, on average just over two-and-a-half
hours a day. Aside from web portals and web search engines, the most popular websites
are eBay, MySpace,
Amazon.com, The New York Times, and Apple. Twelve million Americans keep a blog.
rhythmic and lyrical styles of African American music have deeply influenced American
music at large, distinguishing it from European
traditions. Elements from folk idioms such as the blues and what is now known
as old-time music were adopted and transformed into popular genres with global
audiences. Jazz was developed by innovators such as Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington
early in the twentieth century. Country music, rhythm and blues, and rock and
roll emerged between the 1920s and 1950s. In the 1960s, Bob Dylan emerged from
the folk revival to become one of America's greatest songwriters and James Brown
led the development of funk. More recent American creations include hip hop and
house music. American pop stars such as Elvis
Presley, Michael Jackson, and Madonna
have become global celebrities.
the late nineteenth century, baseball has been regarded as the national sport;
American football, basketball, and ice hockey are the country's three other leading
professional team sports. College football and basketball also attract large audiences.
Football is now
by several measures the most popular spectator sport in the United States. Boxing
and horse racing
were once the most watched individual sports, but they have been eclipsed by golf
and auto racing, particularly NASCAR. Soccer is played widely at the youth and
amateur levels and is growing in popularity as a professional spectator sport.
Tennis and many outdoor sports are also popular.
most major U.S. sports have evolved out of European practices, basketball, volleyball,

arose from Native
American and Native Hawaiian activities that predate Western contact. Eight
Olympic Games have taken place in the United States. The United States has won

Games, more than any other country, and 216 in the Winter Olympic Games, the
