SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 Second Amendment does not change the revenue sharing requirements under the existing compact, but rather adjusts the destination of a portion of the Tribe's annual payment to be deposited into the Michigan Native American Heritage Fund, establishes a Heritage Fund Board and allows the Local Revenue Sharing Board to approve distributions in advance. The Second Amendment is approved. See 25 U.S.C. 2710(d)(8)(A).
