Tribal Alliance Releases Study On State Revenue Impacts Of Internet Poker In California

 

 

SACRAMENTO, Calif.,  -- The California Tribal Business Alliance (CTBA) released a study concerning the state revenue impacts of internet poker in California. It can easily be downloaded in full on its website atwww.caltba.org.

The study was conducted by Mike Genest, the former Director of the California Department of Finance. In the seven-page letter, Genest estimates the revenue that California could derive from a proposal that is currently being discussed in the legislature to license and tax intrastate, internet poker.

"The proponents of this proposal to legalize internet poker in California are touting it as a major solution to our state's budget crisis," said CTBA Chairwoman Leslie Lohse.

In August of 2009, a plan was proposed to legalize and tax intrastate poker in California, but no legislator would author the legislation. The proposal has returned and the Senate Governmental Organization Committee will take up the issue of internet poker on February 9.

A brief excerpt from Genest's letter:

Established in 2004, the California Tribal Business Alliance was formed by California Indian tribes interested in developing partnerships and coalitions with like-minded governments and with business entities in California, with the intent to build productive alliances based on mutual respect and cooperation.

The CTBA members are the Jackson Rancheria of Miwuk Indians, the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians, Pala Band of Mission Indians, the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians, the United Auburn Indian Community, and the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians.
