The Glendale casino is facing opposition from mayors in Arizona. Congress is
being encouraged by the group to approve a proposed bill that will keep the
casino from being built.
The Tohono O'odham nation wants to build the West Valley Resort and Casino. It
will cost $550 million to complete.
The casino project has been controversial. Other tribes in the state have tried
to stop the project. Stating that the casino would be in violation of a law that
was passed in 2002 by Arizona voters. The law prevented the Phoenix area from
developing new casinos.
However, Tohono O'odham nation states that the casino would be built on land
exempt from the law.
H.R. 1410, also nicknamed Keep The Promise act, is a proposed measure that will
keep the West Valley Resort and Casino from being built. The act will not allow
for any tribal casinos to be developed until 2027. That is when the current
gaming compact between tribes and state are set to expire. At that time,
negotiations will take place to agree on new gaming compacts.
The state house has approved the bill. The Senate approval will be needed next
for the bill to continue.
