Section 11 of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) requires the Secretary of the Interior to publish in the Federal Register notice of approved Tribal-State compacts that are for the purpose of engaging in Class III gaming activities on Indian lands. See Public Law 100-497, 25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq. All Tribal-State Class III compacts, including amendments, are subject to review and approval by the Secretary under 25 CFR 293.4. The Secretary took no action on the compacts within 45 days of their submission. Therefore, the compacts are considered to have been approved, but only to the extent the compacts are consistent with IGRA. See 25 U.S.C. 2710(d)(8)(C).Start Signature
