A new law in Indiana may prevent the negotiation of a new gaming compact between the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and Gov. Mike Pence. The tribe is interested in developing a casino in South Bend. On Wednesday John Warren, the tribe's chairman spoke against the new law.

In the law the compact must specify who will manage the gaming operations for the tribe. Types of games in operation along with gaming administration and regulations of those games. The improvements to the facility that will be made. As well as conditions for revenue sharing that will be paid to local governments and the state. The General Assembly also must give approval for the compact.

Requirements that future gaming compacts must include are written into the new law. The tribe believes that this prevents the governor and the tribe from negotiating in good faith. The mandatory stipulations makes the new law violate the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.

The plans for the proposed casino in South Bend is currently being reviewed by the federal Bureau of Indiana Affairs. Plans include a hotel with 500 guest rooms, a tribal village, and a facility for medical services.

If the law does not change, Warren believes that a compact will be written by the BIA that defines a relationship for future gaming between Indiana and the tribe.
