PHOENIX (AP) - Federal legislation was introduced Tuesday to try to stop the Tohono O'odham Nation from building a casino near Glendale.

The bill spearheaded by Republican Rep. Trent Franks would bar casinos on land in metro Phoenix that's made part of the American Indian reservation system in 2013 and afterward.

The federal government declared the Tohono O'odham Nation property near Glendale a reservation, but pending litigation prevents the land from being made part of the system.

A similar bill by Franks last year cleared the House, but never got a vote in the Senate.

The tribe had received $30 million to replace nearly 10,000 acres of ancestral reservation land damaged by a dam.

The tribe says the property near Glendale that it purchased in 2003 is part of that replacement program.
