Proposed Gaming Compact would allow for More Navajo Casinos
January 02, 2014
Under the current gaming compact, there are three casinos owned by the Navajo
Nation in New Mexico. Those casinos operate class III gaming. In 2015 the
compact is set to expire. Negotiations are being planned in preparation for a
new gaming compact.
Two new casinos are being suggested and if approved would bring the casino total
up to five Class III operations. Online gaming and disbursement of revenues are
also being considered.
Opponents to the proposed compact believe that an approval will change what
other tribes will be allowed to do with their gaming compacts. In addition to
bringing more competition to the area.
It is expected to begin official negotiations by January 20. The new compact
would be effective until 2037.
