Brief Description of Collection: The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA or the Act), 25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq., governs the regulation of gaming on Indian lands. Although IGRA places primary responsibility with the tribes for regulating their Class II gaming activities, § 2706(b) directs the Commission to monitor Class II gaming conducted on Indian lands on a continuing basis. Amongst other actions necessary to carry out the Commission’s statutory duties, the Act authorizes the Commission to access and inspect all papers, books, and records relating to gross revenues of a Class II gaming operation. The Act also requires tribes to provide the Commission with annual independent audits of their gaming operations, including audits of all contracts in excess of $25,000. 25 U.S.C. 2710(b)(2)(C), (D); 2710(d)(1)(A)(ii). In accordance with these statutory mandates, Commission regulations require Indian gaming operations to keep and maintain permanent financial records, and to submit to the Commission independent audits of their gaming operations on an annual basis. This information collection is mandatory and allows the Commission to fulfill its statutory responsibilities under IGRA to regulate Class II gaming on Indian lands. Respondents: Indian tribal gaming operations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1268. Estimated Annual Responses: 1268. Estimated Time per Response: Depending on the type of information collection, the range of time can vary from 20.5 burden hours to 1506.75 burden hours for one item.

Title: Approval of Class II and Class III Ordinances, Background Investigations, and Gaming Licenses. OMB Control Number: 3141–0003. Brief Description of Collection: The Act sets standards for the regulation of gaming on Indian lands, including requirements for the approval or disapproval of tribal gaming ordinances. Section 2705(a)(3) requires the NIGC Chair to review all Class II and Class III tribal gaming ordinances. In accordance with this statutory provision, Commission regulations require tribes to submit: (i) A copy of the gaming PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40767 ordinance, or amendment thereof, to be approved, including a copy of the authorizing resolution by which it was enacted by the tribal government, and a request for approval of the ordinance or resolution; (ii) designation of an agent for service of process; (iii) a description of procedures the tribe will employ in conducting background investigations on primary management officials (PMOs) and key employees; (iv) a description of procedures the tribe will use to issue licenses to PMOs and key employees; (v) copies of all gaming regulations; (vi) a copy of any applicable tribal-state compact; (vii) a description of dispute resolution procedures for disputes arising between the gaming public and the tribe or management contractor; and (viii) identification of the law enforcement agency that will take fingerprints and a description of the procedures for conducting criminal history checks. The Commission also requires a tribal ordinance to provide that the tribe will perform background investigations and issue licenses for PMOs and key employees according to requirements that are as stringent as those contained in Commission regulations. The NIGC Chair will use the information collected to approve or disapprove the ordinance or amendment thereof. Commission regulations also require tribes to perform background investigations and issue licenses for PMOs and key employees using certain information provided by applicants, such as names, addresses, previous employment records, previous relationships with either Indian tribes or the gaming industry, licensing related to those relationships, any convictions, and any other information that a tribe feels is relevant to the employment of the individuals being investigated. Tribes are then required to keep complete application files. Tribes are also required to create and keep investigative reports, and to submit to the Commission notices of results (licensing eligibility determinations) on PMOs and key employees. Tribes must notify the Commission if they issue or do not issue licenses to PMOs and key employees, and if they revoke said licenses. The Commission uses this information to review the eligibility and suitability determinations that tribes make and advises them if it disagrees with any particular determination. These information collections are mandatory and allow the Commission to carry out its statutory duties. Respondents: Indian tribal gaming operations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,580.

Commission regulations require a tribe interested in receiving a certificate to file with the Commission a petition generally describing the tribe’s gaming operations, its regulatory process, its uses of net gaming revenue, and its accounting and recordkeeping systems. The tribe must also provide copies of various documents in support of the petition. Tribes who have been issued a certificate of self-regulation are required to submit to the Commission certain information on an annual basis, including information that establishes that the tribe continuously meets the regulatory eligibility and approval requirements and supporting documentation that explains how tribal gaming revenues were used in accordance with the requirements in 25 U.S.C. 2710(b)(2)(B). Submission of the petition and supporting documentation is voluntary. The Commission will use the information submitted by the tribe in determining whether to issue the certificate of self-regulation. Once a certificate of self-regulation has been issued, the submission of certain other information is mandatory. Respondents: Tribal governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 8.

    OMB Control Number: 3141-0003.
    Brief Description of Collection: The Act sets standards for the 
regulation of gaming on Indian lands, including requirements for the

gaming ordinances. In accordance with this statutory provision, 
Commission regulations require tribes to submit: (i) A copy of the 
gaming ordinance, or amendment thereof, to be approved, including a 
copy of the authorizing resolution by which it was enacted by the 
tribal government, and a request for approval of the ordinance or

certain information provided by applicants, such as names, addresses, 
previous employment records, previous relationships with either Indian 
tribes or the gaming industry, licensing related to those 
relationships, any convictions, and any other information that a tribe 
feels is relevant to the employment of the individuals being 
investigated. Tribes are then required to keep complete application 
files. Tribes are also required to create and keep investigative 
reports, and to submit to the Commission notices of results (licensing 
eligibility determinations) on PMOs and key employees. Tribes must 
notify the Commission if they issue or do not issue licenses to PMOs 
and key employees, and if they revoke said licenses. The Commission 
uses this information to review the eligibility and suitability 
determinations that tribes make and advises them if it disagrees with 
any particular determination. These information collections are 
mandatory and allow the Commission to carry out its statutory duties.
    Respondents: Indian tribal gaming operations.

the nature of the subject contract and other circumstances, approval of 
such management contracts may be categorically excluded from NEPA, may 
require the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA), or may

gaming activities; and an enterprise free of evidence of criminal or 
dishonest activity. The tribe must also have adopted and implemented 
proper accounting, licensing, and enforcement systems, and conducted 
the gaming operation on a fiscally or economically sound basis. 
Commission regulations require a tribe interested in receiving a 
certificate to file with the Commission a petition generally describing 
the tribe's gaming operations, its regulatory process, its uses of net 
gaming revenue, and its accounting and recordkeeping systems. The tribe
