House Overwhelmingly Votes To Block Tohono O'odham From Building Glendale Casino

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to approve a bill sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-CD2) to prevent the Tohono O'odham from building a casino in Glendale.  Arizona's Politics posted the debate - and the text of the bill - earlier today.

The vote was 343-78.  Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD7) and 1st day Rep. Ron Barber (D-CD8) were the only two members of the Arizona delegation to vote against it.

The measure now moves to the Senate.
