The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) amends its minimum internal control standards for Class II gaming under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act to provide comprehensive and updated standards for all aspects of Class II gaming. These amendments replace the partial standards published in 2008 with a set of comprehensive standards for the entire Class II gaming environment. The new sections include, for example: Card games; drop and count; surveillance; and gaming promotions and player tracking.

Review and Submittal of a Tribe's Facility License Information
Document Number: 2012-1915
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-01-31
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Indian Gaming Commission
The National Indian Gaming Commission is proposing revisions to its regulations that would provide for an expedited review of a tribe's facility license information and streamline the submittal of information relating to a proposed facility license. The proposed rule also provides for tribes to submit a certification attesting that the gaming operation is being conducted in a manner that adequately protects the environment and the public health and safety. Further, the proposed rule requires a facility license to be submitted before the opening of any new place, facility, or location on Indian lands where class II or III gaming will occur. Likewise, a tribe must notify the Chair if a facility license is terminated, expires, or if a gaming place, facility, or location closes or reopens, unless the closure is seasonal or temporary.
Appeal Proceedings Before the Commission
Document Number: 2012-1767
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-01-31
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Indian Gaming Commission
The National Indian Gaming Commission proposes to add a new subchapter to its regulations to create a clear process for appeal proceedings before the Commission. It would, among other things, define certain terms, set forth the burden of proof and standard of review, explain what information a Commission decision will contain, and what happens if the Commission does not issue a majority decision, and provide that an appeal of the Chair's decision does not stay the effect of that decision. The proposed regulations set forth rules for motion practice in appeals before the Commission, addresses how an entity other than a tribe would request to participate on a limited basis in ordinance appeals, how parties file motions to intervene, to supplement the record, and for reconsideration, and how to file motions before the presiding official. Additionally, the proposed regulation sets forth more specific rules for different types of appeals. Rules for appeals of ordinance disapprovals, management contract approvals and disapprovals, appeals before a presiding official, and appeals before the Commission on written submission only each receive somewhat different treatment.
Self-Regulation of Class II Gaming
Document Number: 2012-1763
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-01-31
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Indian Gaming Commission
This action proposes to amend the NIGC's self-regulation regulations to tailor the self-regulating qualifying criteria to a tribe's regulation of class II gaming activity and more clearly define and streamline the self-regulation certification process. By tailoring the self-regulating qualifying criteria to the capabilities of a tribe's regulatory body, and by clarifying and streamlining the certification process, more tribes may become self-regulating.
Notice of Tribal Consultations; Schedule Update
Document Number: 2011-33190
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-12-28
Agency: National Indian Gaming Commission, Department of the Interior
On November 18, 2010, the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) published a Notice of Inquiry and Notice of Consultation, 75 FR 70680. The Commission announced to the public a comprehensive review of all its regulations, sought responses to many general and specific questions about its regulations, and announced a schedule of consultations. This notice adds two consultations to the schedule for January 2012. Should any further changes to the consultation schedule be necessary, the Commission will announce them in the Federal Register and on its Web site, www.nigc.gov.
Definition of Enforcement Action
Document Number: 2011-33028
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-27
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Indian Gaming Commission
This action proposes to amend NIGC regulations to include definitions for ``enforcement action''. The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act authorizes the NIGC to take certain actions in regard to violations of the Act, NIGC regulations, and tribal gaming ordinances. However, current NIGC regulations do not provide a definition for such actions. The Commission believes that providing a definition for these actions will provide clarity to persons subject to them. Therefore, a definition of ``enforcement action'' is proposed in this notice.
Enforcement Actions
Document Number: 2011-32757
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-27
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Indian Gaming Commission
This action proposes to amend NIGC regulations to include a graduated pre-enforcement process through which a tribe may come into compliance before an enforcement action is taken by the Chair. Voluntary compliance is the goal of the Commission. This amendment sets forth how Commission staff and tribes may address potential or existing compliance issues. The amendment retains the Chair's authority to issue an enforcement action at the Chair's discretion. The amendment also modifies this Part to allow a temporary closure order when there is clear and convincing evidence that a gaming operation defrauds a tribe. The current regulation provides for the issuance of a temporary closure order when there is clear and convincing evidence that a gaming operation defrauds a tribe or a customer. The Commission believes this issue has been adequately addressed by ordinance requirements of the IGRA and NIGC regulations, because tribes must include in their ordinances a dispute resolution procedure to address issues where a customer believes she or he has been defrauded. If the tribe fails to follow their ordinance, enforcement action may be taken. Finally, current regulations do not provide specificity for when an enforcement action becomes final, such as when a notice of violation is issued and there is no appeal filed or settlement agreement reached. The proposed amendment clarifies that an enforcement action becomes final agency action and a final order of the Commission if no appeal is filed or a settlement agreement reached.
Tribal Background Investigations and Licensing
Document Number: 2011-32760
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-22
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Indian Gaming Commission
The proposed rule modifies certain NIGC regulations concerning background investigations and licenses to reduce the quantity of documents that must be submitted to the Commission; to require that two notifications be submitted to the Commission in order to comply with the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA); and to establish the requirements for the issuance of temporary and permanent gaming licenses.
Management Contracts-Background Investigations
Document Number: 2011-32759
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-22
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Indian Gaming Commission
This action proposes to amend NIGC regulations to include tribes, wholly owned tribal entities, and national banks that are already federally regulated or required to undergo a background investigation and licensure by a state or tribe pursuant to a tribal- state compact as entities that the Chair may exercise discretion regarding the submission of information and background investigations. This process may provide for a streamlined review for such entities in the background investigation process required for management contracts. The proposed revision may reduce duplication of efforts while maintaining the integrity of NIGC review. The proposal maintains the Chair's discretion in determining which entities should be allowed to proceed through an expedited background investigation. This amendment has been included in this proposed rule. The Commission also considered revising its regulations to clarify that a management contractor should be required to submit background information when the contract is for management of both Class II and Class III gaming activities. Many public comments noted that it was not a necessary revision. The Commission agrees with those public comments and does not propose that clarification.

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.
