Press Releases

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) released the following statement today applauding Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s effort to modernize the Indian gaming compact and resolve the long-running dispute over the Glendale casino:

“We applaud Governor Ducey for his leadership in developing a state-tribal resolution to the Glendale casino issue. We have long opposed the air-dropping of Indian casinos on land that is not contiguous to an existing Indian reservation. The controversy involving the Tohono O'odham gaming facility in Glendale has divided Arizona's Indian tribes for years, and we hope this agreement will heal those divisions and eliminate the need for federal legislation.”
