PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Department of Gaming says contributions to the state from tribal gaming revenue will be about $13.5 million for the quarter that ended Dec. 31.

That's about 2.7 percent more than the same quarter in 2012.

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

He says about $6.5 million will go toward the state's Instructional Improvement Fund for education, with roughly $3.2 million going into the Trauma and Emergency Services Fund and about $1.6 million going toward Arizona Department of Gaming operating costs. Other revenue will go to the Arizona Wildlife Conservation Fund and the State Tourism Fund.
