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.
