Ariz. gaming compacts finally signed

Facebook Twitter Email

Outgoing Arizona Governor Jane Hull (R) on Wednesday signed gaming compacts with 10 of the state's 17 tribes.

A ceremony capped nearly two years of legal and political wrangling over the deals. Voters finally sent a message, although a narrow one, to expand gaming on the state's reservations.

The compacts must still gain final approval from the Department of Interior.
