Plans for a Resort Casino in the Phoenix metro are one step closer to happening. Governor Jan Brewer signed the bill on Tuesday that allows for the city of Glendale to annex 54 acres as tribal land.

Last week the bill was approved by the House and the Senate. The Governor signed the bill just one day before it's deadline.

Arizona law states that casinos can only be built on American Indian reservation land. The Tohono O'odham Nation, who's land is in Sells, previously bought the land outside of Glendale. The next step for the tribe is to have the federal government add the land to the tribe's reservation. If this happens, the Tohono O'odham can legally move forward with plans to build their casino.

A legal challenge has already been submitted to the federal court. The result is still pending.
