Proposition 202 Tribal Gaming Program

In November 2002, the voters of Arizona approved Proposition 202 which initiated new gaming compacts between the State of Arizona and the Native American communities. An important provision of Proposition 202 was the sharing of gaming revenues with the State. Henceforth, tribes would be assessed by the State a percentage of their gross gaming revenue. Tribes had the option of either paying all of this assessment into a State managed fund or to pay 88% of the assessment into the State managed fund and retain 12% of the assessment for distribution as grants.
