And the Winner is. . . . California

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians celebrates a long fought victory after the results on proposition 94-95-96 and 97 are announced in favor of the California tribes. A small group of supporters stayed until the projected victor was announced. The victory gives California an average of 1 Million dollars a day in new gaming revenue taxes and allows the winning tribes a combined total of 17,000 new slot machines distributed among the four tribes.
