Study shows Chumash casino tremendous economic engine

Santa Ynez, California (AP) 3-08

The Chumash Casino Resort is a major economic engine in Santa Barbara County, bringing jobs, increasing tourism and generating $366 million to the regional economy.

A 40-page economic impact report funded by the Santa Barbara County Taxpayers Association business group concluded the Santa Ynex Valley Indian casino is a “significant economic enterprise.”

Last year, the tribe had 1,587 employees and spent an estimated $185 million on labor, goods, services, payroll and financial distributions to tribal members.

Casino operations resulted in the collection of $16.6 million in state and federal payroll taxes.
