ROHNERT PARK, Calif. | March 10, 2023 10:21 AM Pacific Standard Time
Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria and the State of California have entered into a Tribal-State gaming compact as announced by Governor Newsom’s office on March 9, 2023. This will replace the agreement signed in 2012. The new compact increases the number of authorized slot machines at Graton Resort & Casino from 3000 to 6000 (one of the highest amounts in the state). It also provides additional support for limited and non-gaming tribes through the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund (RSTF), beyond the $1.1 million per year cap that each limited and non-gaming tribe has previously been restricted to. The compact is available on the State of California website here.
“We’re happy to improve our compact with the State of California and continue to provide needed community funds for the City of Rohnert Park, Sonoma County and our state,” said Greg Sarris, Tribal Chairman, Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. “This compact allows the tribe to grow as a self-sustaining sovereign nation and continue to support our mission of social justice and environmental stewardship.”
