Arguments on this page are the opinions of the authors and have not been checked for accuracy by any official agency.
MISLEADING SCARE TACTICS. THAT'S WHAT THE BIG NEVADA CASINOS ARE USING in their campaign against Proposition 5 BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KILL COMPETITION FROM CALIFORNIA'S INDIANS.

Here are the facts.

A YES vote on Prop. 5 will:

"For centuries Native Americans have revered the land. Proposition 5 continues existing environmental protections of sovereign tribal land and provides resources for improved environmental protection. Vote YES on 5."
-Mary Nichols, Past President, California League of Conservation Voters

"Proposition 5 and federal law strictly limit Indian gaming to Tribal land. The claim that casinos could be built anywhere is totally false."
-David Risling, Professor Emeritus of Native American Studies, University of California

INDIAN GAMING HAS ALREADY CUT WELFARE ON RESERVATIONS BY 68%, SAVING CALIFORNIA TAXPAYERS $50 MILLION PER YEAR.

Today, California's Indians are truly pulling their own weight and paying their own way.
