The U.S. House failed to come up with two-thirds of the votes that were needed in order to derail the Indian casino that is planned to be constructed near Glendale.
Monday evening the U.S. House rejected the quick passage of a bill that was intended to block the Tohono O’odham Nation Indian Tribe from constructing and opening a casino that is controversial that is planned to be located near Glendale that is in the West Valley.
The U.S. House members came to a vote of 263 to 146, with a total 25 members absenteeism’s, in support of the Keep the Promise Act. The total tally of votes fell short of the two-thirds of the votes that were necessary in order to advance the measure on to what is known as the suspension calendar.
The future of this proposal, which Rep. Trent Franks introduced, was very uncertain. The proposed measure was initially intended to cancel the years long drive by the Tohono O’odham Nation Indian Tribe in order to open a Las Vegas style game hall that would be located near Glendale.
Unfortunately at Monday’s meeting the U.S. House failed to reassert its very long established history that they have in managing, regulating as well as working together with different tribes on the issues of tribal trust land. Specifically where they have planned to construct and open this unlawful casino stated Rep. Trent Franks.
