1. Meeting Called to Order

Meeting called to order by Chairman Jones at 10:00 AM.

2. Discuss Scientific Games Contract Extension

Director Anderson reminded the Commission about the Scientific Games contract and explained that the initial contract for the first five years expires on August 14, 2012. The contract calls for a threeyear extension and we have been working with them on terms of the extension. As we were reviewing their response to us, it occurred to us that we may want to look the long term extension of the Scientific Games contract in a broader way as it relates to all of our vendors.

We are asking the Commission today for approval to send a letter to Scientific Games requesting a sixmonth extension under the current terms of the contract. This would give us additional time to review all of our vendor contracts in totality before we move forward.

Commissioner Fisher moved for approval of a sixmonth extension with Scientific Games. Commissioner Keyes seconded the motion. In a roll call vote the Commissioners voted as such: Commissioner Corbett, Aye; Commissioner Rehder, Aye; Commissioner Keyes, Aye; Commissioner Fisher, Aye. With the vote being unanimous the motion was approved.

Discussion – Director Anderson reported that at his annual meeting with the Coeur d’Alene Tribe on August 2, 2012 the Tribe invited the Commission to hold the November 2, 2012 meeting in Northern Idaho at the casino in Worley. Director Anderson indicated the Tribe offered to have a dinner meeting with the Commission November 1, 2012 followed by the Commission meeting on November 2, 2012. Jennifer QuinnoMiller will follow up on availability of rooms and travel arrangements and will advise.

3. Adjournment

Commissioner Fisher moved to adjourn the meeting. Commissioner Rehder seconded the motion. The vote was unanimous to adjourn.
