25 CFR 556.5 - Tribal eligibility determination.
A tribe shall conduct an investigation sufficient to make an eligibility determination.
(a) To make a finding concerning the eligibility of a key employee or primary management official for granting of a gaming license, an authorized tribal official shall review a person's:
(1) Prior activities;
(2) Criminal record, if any; and
(3) Reputation, habits, and associations.
(b) If the authorized tribal official, in applying the standards adopted in a tribal ordinance, determines that licensing of the person poses a threat to the public interest or to the effective regulation of gaming, or creates or enhances the dangers of unsuitable, unfair, or illegal practices and methods and activities in the conduct of gaming, an authorizing tribal official shall not license that person in a key employee or primary management official position.
