Breaks California’s Promise to our Tribes
Prop 27 requires tribes to give up their rights under the California Constitution in order to participate in online gaming, breaking a promise made to tribes by California voters over two decades ago. We cannot allow an out-of-state, corporate-funded ballot prop to threaten tribal sovereignty and exclusivity.
GET THE FACTS
THEY DIDN’T WRITE FOR THE HOMELESS, THEY WROTE IT FOR THEMSELVES
Vote No on Prop. 27’s deceptive funding promises, lack of real jobs and investment in California, and lack of safe gaming infrastructure to protect our kids.
➥ FALSE PROMISES AND HIDDEN AGENDAS
Just like the when we were told the state lottery would solve education funding, we can’t believe the false promises on Prop. 27.
In the past, the gambling operators behind Prop. 27 have promised big money to other states, and the have fallen far short. Learn more
➥ LOOPHOLES AND FINE PRINT
Prop. 27 will allow write-offs and loopholes that will shortchange funds for homelessness and for helping California’s poorest Native American tribes.
The huge upfront licensing fee they are proposing actually gets fully refunded to the gaming companies out of money that’s supposed to help the homeless. More money for the out-of-state corporations, less money for homeless. Read the fine print
➥ OUT-OF-STATE CORPORATIONS WIN – CALIFORNIA AND ITS TRIBES LOSE
Written and paid for by out-of-state corporations, Prop. 27 is written to benefit them, not Californians.
It will send 90% of profits out of state without creating any real jobs. And tribes will have to give up their sovereignty to participate. Read the fine print.
Prop. 27 is deliberately designed to block anyone but the biggest national firms from
even getting a state license, forcing tribes to be beholden to these companies.
➥ LEAVES OUR CHILDREN BEHIND
Prop. 27 robs our schools of hundreds of millions of dollars while failing to protect our children against underage gambling.
This is one of the largest expansions of gambling in California history but it has NO IN PERSON AGE VERIFICATION to prevent minors from gambling.
That is why the California Teachers Association opposes Prop. 27.
