SANTA FE (KRQE) – With less than two weeks left in the legislative session, the Navajo Nation is worried about their expiring gambling compact.

If a new compact is not approved before the session ends, American Indian tribes will have to pull the plug on their casinos this summer – leaving thousands unemployed.

Lawmakers are expected to take up the compact later this week. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
