The terms of the compact signed in 2004 required The Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians to contribute a flat fee of $17.4 million to the general fund each year.  The Department of Finance estimated that the state will receive reduced revenue of about $3 million to $5 million annually under the new deal.  American Indian tribes with casinos are significant donors to California campaigns. Viejas has made about $711,000 in contributions since January 2013 to state candidates and campaign committees, but none directly to Brown, according to state records.
