The Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise (NNGE) announced that Navajo Nation
President Ben Shelly signed legislation today allowing alcohol to be taken onto
the casino floor of its Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort, located along I-40,
exit 219, just east of Flagstaff.
The legislation was approved by the Navajo Nation Council this past Friday and
forwarded to President Ben Shelly. It is specific to Arizona-based Navajo Nation
casinos and is not applicable to its three existing New Mexico-based properties.
This liquor statute amendment will allow Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort to
remain competitive with other tribal casinos in the state that currently allow
patrons to take and consume alcohol onto their casino floors.
"The primary objective of the Navajo Nation Gaming Enterprise continues to be
jobs creation for the Navajo people as we become northern Arizona's premier
destination casino resort," states Derrick Watchman, CEO of the Navajo Nation
Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort will continue to follow Navajo Nation and
Arizona liquor handling and service laws in accordance to its liquor licensing.
