California's practice of pressuring Indian tribes to share casino profits in exchange for approval of slot machines has been hit with a setback. The Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians has received approval of its gambling authorization from the federal government, reducing the amount it must pay the state, which has traditionally negotiated gaming compacts and demanded a large share of profits. Rincon had sued then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the state for “illegal taxation” and “bad faith” in renegotiations for a gaming compact in which the tribe was asked to share profits in exchange for the state approving 900 new slot machines for its Harrah's Rincon Casino and Resort in San Diego County.

An overflow crowd packed the Escondido City Council chambers Thursday as Indian leaders from throughout Southern California testified before a U. S. Senate committee about a host of problems besetting local tribes and their reservations. Sen. Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii) chaired the hearing of the Select Committee on Indian Affairs and told the estimated audience of 250 that he is "aware of the sad and tragic history of Indians in California." Inouye began the hearing by reminding representatives of the various tribes about the hundreds of Indian treaties violated by the federal government.

The Sycuan Indian Reservation, for three years a host to high-stakes bingo games, will open a poker casino Friday, becoming the second Indian reservation in the county to offer poker, it was announced Wednesday. The card room will not feature several controversial poker games that have been contested in courts elsewhere in California, but will offer only high draw and lo-ball poker, said general manager Mark Glocke.
