I have called the Office of Indian Affairs in the North Carolina State government at 919-807-4440. I asked about the Certification Committee that is established in the NC/EBHI pact to approve casino equipment. I asked: Who are the appointed representatives and could I get some contact information?

The person answering the phone responded by telling me about the Commission of Indian Affairs and its various Divisions. None of the Commission of Indian Affairs divisions have anything to do with the casinos.

I explained again that I was referencing the "Certification Committee" that was authorized in the State-EBHI pact to approve casino devices such as video games and slot machines. I was told that she would have to research that topic further and get back to me.

Plausibly, I may have simply called the wrong NC State gov't organization. Or, it may be that the Certification Committee is inactive or operates with a very low profile. I will let you know what I learn.

To my vocal critics: I invite you to be constructive and advance the discussion on this thread by reporting any information you can find as to whether a North Carolina regulatory agency for casino gambling actually exists.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

They may too busy expressing their sexual orientation, especially as the Justice Department moves against the state with all its power. They need all-gender bathrooms as of today.

If they had asked me, which they haven't, I could have solved this for them.
If you look like an attractive female, use the female restrooms.
If you you look like an attractive male, use the male restrooms.
All others are welcomed in the Porta-potties we have placed on the parking lot.
The Porta-potties are gender neutral.
Done.

North Carolina has criminalized commercial casino gambling so they have no need to regulate it. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, which is the sovereign nation that owns the two tribal casinos in North Carolina, has a gaming commission. It's website is here: http://www.cherokeegamingcommission.com/

North Carolina state law does not, and cannot, supersede the rights granted to Native American tribes under the IGRA. There simply is no jurisdiction for North Carolina to enact regulations over Cherokee casinos, but for any affirmative agreement (compact) between the state and the tribe.

272 x 2 red chips = $2700, not exactly pocket change (tip included, and most of them aren't all that cute ;-)
Depends on your tastes I guess, And I have not tasted any of them (official statement ;-)
