SUBJECT: Fresno County Fiscal Year 2018-19 Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund Annual Report

RECOMMENDED ACTION(S):
TITLE
Retroactively approve Fresno County Fiscal Year 2018-19 Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund Annual Report to the State Legislature.
REPORT
The California Government Code ?12716 mandates counties that administer grants from the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund (IGSDF) to submit an annual report to the State of California by October 1st of each year. The Fresno County Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee (Committee) Operating Policy and Procedure requires that the Board of Supervisors approve the annual report; a local policy and not required by the California Government Code.

For FY 2018-19 there was continued uncertainty of reporting requirements due to the Governor continuing to not allocate any IGSDF to counties in FY 2019-20.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION(S):

There is no viable alternative action as submission of the annual report to the State Legislature is a requirement.
