The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians on Wednesday made its first payment to the state under terms of its amended gaming compact.
There was concern about Pechanga meeting its payment obligations since news of the HUGE number of people being laid off. Pechanga has lost business due to the economy and the thug behavior of it's youth had cause SILK nightclub to close down.
Additionally, news of a commercial bribery scheme broke recently where a Pechanga employee was charging $3,000 to falsify applications for job applicants to get consideration.
Pechanga had paid multiple millions more than 3 other gaming tribes in order for their Prop 94 to pass.
