For More Information...

Official Summary: A "Yes" vote approves, a "No" vote rejects a law, previously passed by the Legislature and signed by the Governor, that would: formally approve 11 tribal-state compacts that were concluded in 1998; provide procedures for approving future compacts; declare the Governor responsible for negotiation of compacts; and authorize the Governor to waive state's immunity to suit by tribes. Fiscal impact: If Proposition 1A (on this ballot) is approved, Proposition 29 would have no fiscal impact on state and local governments. If Proposition 1A is not approved, Proposition 29 would result in unknown, but probably not significant, fiscal impacts on state and local governments.
