An Act To Authorize a Federally Recognized Indian Tribe in the State To Benefit from the Operation of an Existing Casino
Sec. 1. 8 MRSA §1036, sub-§2-A, as amended by PL 2011, c. 625, §§3 and 4 and c. 657, Pt. W, §5, is further amended to read:
If a recipient of net slot machine income in paragraph D, H or I owns or receives funds from a slot machine facility or casino, other than the casino in Oxford County or the slot machine facility in Bangor, then the recipient may not receive funds under this subsection, and those funds must be retained by the Oxford County casino operator.
This bill provides the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians the same distribution of net slot machine income from casino slot machines as is provided to the Penobscot Nation and the Passamaquoddy Tribe under current law.
