  • Pojoaque proposes gambling change

     

     SANTA FE (AP) — Pojoaque Pueblo has proposed a gambling compact to the federal government that would lower the gambling age to 18 from 21 and allow the tribe to stop revenue sharing payments to the state.

    Pojoaque also proposes serving alcohol in casino gambling areas, which is currently prohibited.

    The Interior Department has asked Gov. Susana Martinez and Attorney General Gary King to comment on Pojoaque’s proposals for casino gambling on tribal lands north of Santa Fe.

    The pueblo’s compact with the state expires in mid-2015.
