The stakes are too high to gamble away tribal self-government, self-sufficiency, and economic development when amending the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act
Only those amendments to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) which promote strong tribal government, economic development and self-sufficiency should be enacted. It is true that gaming tribes resent the original act's requirement that they follow federal regulations, while states feel the IGRA's compulsory compacting provision violates the constitution's guarantee of state sovereignty. The proposed amendments increase the power of the National Indian Gaming Commission and change the state's burden of proof regarding its readiness for good faith negotiation, but still need some work to adequately meet the three above goals.

The gamble that paid off: the casino boom is forging new relationships between American Indians and the law
American Indians and US law have begun influencing one another in new ways since Indians developed a casino industry that is flourishing nationwide. Legal interaction has shifted from poverty law to business law, and a number of practices now specialize in Indian law, in representing Indian interests in federal law, or in handling cases brought against Indian tribes. The trend involving Indian casinos in local and state economies promises to further extend the shift.
