Governor Stitt, Otoe-Missouria Tribe Chairman John Shotton and the Comanche Nation Chairman William Nelson signed a new gaming compact between the represented tribes and the State.
“These new gaming compacts are in the best interest of the State, members of the Otoe-Missouria tribe and Comanche Nation and the local communities where these tribes reside and operate. The new compacts recognize the sovereign rights of individual tribes to conduct gaming in Oklahoma. The compacts take a sound approach to assessing the value of substantial exclusivity in a modernized tribal gaming industry, and importantly, the compacts expand opportunity for both the compacting tribes and the State to compete in future gaming markets,” said Gov. Stitt, Chairman Nelson and Chairman Shotton. “These tribe-specific agreements will strengthen Oklahoma’s gaming industry, enable tribes to adapt to a rapidly changing environment with new competitive opportunities and facilitate transparency in the administration of gaming enterprises.”
