Jerry Brown Signs Compact with Civil Rights Violating Tribe Pinoleville

Gov. Jerry Brown, who has taken nearly $1 MILLION from gaming tribes,  has signed a gambling compact with a Mendocino County Indian tribe allowing it to build a casino with 900 slot machines.

The governor's office announced the agreement Monday with the Pinoleville Pomo Nation for a casino near Ukiah, about 120 miles north of San Francisco.

It says that up to 15 percent of the casino's net earnings will be used for the community and on programs designed to address gambling addiction.

The agreement also includes steps the tribe must take to protect the environment during construction. A message left with the tribe at its office in Ukiah was not immediately returned.
