West Valley casino clears another hurdle — Glendale Star
It was about 4:50 p.m. Arizona time Nov. 16, when the U.S. House of Representatives failed to meet the two-thirds threshold for suspension of rules and passage of H.R. 308 Keep the Promise Act. It was 263 yea votes to 146 nay votes, approximately 28 votes shy of a super majority, the number required on a bill on the suspension of rules calendar.
The bill, once passed in the Senate and signed by President Obama, would have essentially prohibited the Diamond Desert Casino – West Valley from opening its doors Dec. 20 as scheduled.
