The Tribe’s limited waiver of sovereign immunity is clarified and narrowed to include only disputes arising under the compact. The State similarly waives its sovereign immunity, including a specific waiver of the State’s Eleventh Amendment immunity from suit for the purposes of enforcing the compact. Finally, the proposed amendment changes the annual licensing requirements from annually to every three years. Dated: September 30, 2009. Larry Echo Hawk, Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs. [FR Doc.
