ALG urges House to reject H.R. 312 that guts Indian Gaming Regulatory Act

May 8, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the House to reject H.R. 312 in a vote:

“The House of Representatives should reject H.R. 312, the Senator Elizabeth Warren-led attempt to punch piecemeal holes through the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.  This isn’t about the ability of tribes using land that is part of their long-established heritage for casino development, but instead it is about whether Congress should place gambling institutions on unrelated land based upon proximity to urban areas.  If Senator Warren and her benefactors wish to change the Indian Gaming laws, they should introduce wholesale reforms rather than turning the existing law into Swiss cheese for nothing more than investor pecuniary interests.”
