What do the State & City do with the money paid by the Detroit Casinos?

 The Michigan Gaming Control Board ensures that the Detroit casinos deposit the state casino wagering tax revenues into the state school aid fund to provide additional funds for K-12 classroom education.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board also ensures that the Detroit casinos deposit the City of Detroit Gaming Excise Tax revenues into Detroit's general fund.  These monies may be used for any purpose that can improve Detroit per P.A. 69 of 1997, as amended.
