The California Nations Indian Gaming Association announced the release of its bi-annual economic impact study produced by Beacon Economics, a premier leader in economic research. Researchers at Beacon found that tribal government gaming continues to be a positive economic engine in the state of California. In 2014 California tribal government gaming generated $7.8 billion in economic output in the State.
Tribal government gaming spent $4.0 billion in goods and services which generated an
additional $3.8 billion in secondary spending by vendors that supply casinos. Tribal non-gaming operations in California—the expenditures that tribal governments make in order to provide services to the tribe and community—generated an estimated $3.3 billion in economic output in 2014.
