When gaming becomes a major income stream for your State, the character of the State Goverment changes. As you review Proposition 94, 95, 96 and 97, realize that they will increase gaming in California in or near cities, change State environmental controls and create a very wealthy political lobby that will work further to increase the amount of gaming and size of establishments throughout your State.
Changes in environmental laws will not be restricted to gaming facilities and resorts. Industry lobby, such as energy, chemical, and transportation, have joined gaming lobby in changing various State and National environmental law and policy.

I am surprised that more people outside of California are concerned about our State propositions to increase GAMING in California and bring such mega-operations near our cities. I am further surprised that the overall impact on environmental planning and controls are not causing concerns in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. I am not surprised that the political lobby created by GAMING has been able to keep our regional and county politicians quiet on the subject of social and environmental impact of GAMING.
Where ever you are in California, Mega-casinos can happen! Are you concerned?
