Proposition 200 directs the Governor to enter into tribal gaming compacts allowing Indian tribes to operate slot machines and card and table games on tribal land. Tribes would contribute 3% of "annual net income" (defined as the annual total amount of money collected from Class III gaming, less any annual amounts paid out as prizes or paid for prizes awarded and annual labor and other operating expenses and annual interest expenses, depreciation and amortization) to the state to fund university, community college and tribal college scholarships, programs benefiting senior citizens, tribal education purposes and tribal elderly health care services. These distributions are outside the regular legislative process.
Arizona has entered into gaming compacts with 17 of the state's 21 Indian tribes. These compacts permit the tribes to operate specific gaming activities, including slot machines, that are, according to a federal court decision on appeal, illegal off of Indian reservations. These compacts begin to expire in the summer of 2003.
Proposition 200 directs the Governor to enter into a new gaming compact with each Indian tribe that requests it. All compacts must have the following provisions:
- Arizona Fair Gaming, Proposition 201 (2002)
- Arizona Governor to Negotiate Tribal Casino Compacts, Proposition 200 (2002)
- Arizona Indian Gaming Preservation and Self-Reliance, Proposition 202 (2002)
