PHOENIX - U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Arizona, said today he opposes the plans of the Tohono O'odham tribe to build a casino resort in Glendale.

"I share the concerns raised by Senator John McCain and Governor Jan Brewer regarding the proposed casino's impact on the surrounding communities," Kyl said in a press release. "I am also concerned about the precedent it would set for gaming on newly acquired Indian trust lands. Therefore, I do not support the proposed casino."

Brewer has asked the tribe to withdraw its application to the U.S. Department of Interior to take the proposed 135-acre site into federal trust and allow construction of the casino.

Tohono O'odham Nation leaders insist they will pursue their plan despite the growing political opposition.
