Indian gaming in California brings in an estimated $7 billion each year. Proposition 48 is a referendum on a 2013 agreement between the state and the North Fork Indian tribe allowing a casino to be built off Highway 99 in Madera. Voting "yes" would uphold the legislation ratifying the agreement, while a "no" vote would overrule it.
