The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) 25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq., established the National Indian Gaming Commission (Commission). Section 2710 of the IGRA authorizes the Chairman of the Commission to approve class II and class III tribal gaming ordinances. Section 2710(d)(2)(B) of the IGRA, as implemented by 25 CFR 522.8, requires the Commission to publish, in the Federal Register, approved class III gaming ordinances and the approvals thereof.

The Commission believes that publishing a periodic notice of approved class II or III gaming ordinances in the Federal Register, along with publishing on the Commission's Web site the full text of each ordinance and any approved amendments, is sufficient to meet the requirements of 25 U.S.C. Section 2710(d)(2)(B) and provide the public with adequate notice of all gaming ordinance approvals. Every approved gaming ordinance, every approved ordinance amendment, and the approvals thereof, are posted on the Commission's Web site ( under Reading Room, Gaming Ordinances. Also, the Commission will make copies of approved ordinances available to the public upon request. Requests can be made in writing to the Office of General Counsel, National Indian Gaming Commission, Attn: Frances Fragua, 1441 L Street, NW., Suite 9100, Washington, DC 20005.
