PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Department of Gaming says contributions to the state from tribal gambling revenue will be about $24.1 million for the quarter that ended Sept. 30.

That’s about 0.8 percent more than the same quarter in 2013.

Dan Bergin, the department director, says the slight increase still is welcome news for state programs that get funding from the tribal money.

He says about $12 million will go toward the state’s Instructional Improvement Fund for education with some $6 million going into the Trauma and Emergency Services Fund and about $2.1 million going toward Arizona Department of Gaming operating costs.

Fifteen Arizona tribes currently operate 23 casinos in Arizona.
