Review and Approval of Existing Ordinances or Resolutions
On November 18, 2010, the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) issued a Notice of Inquiry and Notice of Consultation advising the public that the NIGC was conducting a comprehensive review of its regulations and requesting public comment on the process for conducting the regulatory review. On April 4, 2011, after holding eight consultations and reviewing all comments, NIGC published a Notice of Regulatory Review Schedule setting out a consultation schedule and process for review. Based on the above review, the Commission proposes to rescind our regulations pertaining to the approval of existing ordinances and resolutions that were enacted by a Tribe prior to February 22, 1993 and that have not been submitted to the NIGC Chair, and to notify the public that it does not intend to take action at this time on certain other regulations identified in the Notice of Regulatory Review Schedule.
