Big money politics ensures giant Sacramento-area tribal casino

This is how big money politics works in California.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Tuesday that green-lights plans by the Wilton Rancheria Miwok tribe to build a large casino near Sacramento.

The bill, AB1606, ratifies a tribal-state gaming compact between the Wilton Rancheria and the state that allows the tribe to turn a 36-acre patch of tribal land in Elk Grove along Highway 99 in Sacramento County into a sprawling casino resort.

Plans call for a 608,756-square-foot facility that includes a 12-story 302-room hotel, pool, spa, convention center, six restaurants and bars, and a 110,260-square-foot gaming floor.
