The New Mexico Senate rejected the proposed gaming compact between the state and the Navajo Nation on February 18. The final vote was 31 to 10 against the new compact.

The Acoma and Laguna pueblo tribes both gave testimony against the Navajo Nation in regards to the amount of casinos that the Navajos currently own and the potential of over saturating the New Mexico casino market.

The proposed compact would have been in effect until 2035.

The Navajo Nation has the largest territory and more members than any other tribe in New Mexico. These are factors for why the tribe believes they should be allowed to own more casinos.
