ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Laguna Pueblo is raising concerns about a provision in the Navajo Nation's proposed new gaming compact with the state of New Mexico that would let the Navajos have two additional casinos.
    
Skip Sayre, who handles sales and marketing for the Laguna Pueblo owned entity that operates two casinos just west of Albuquerque, says the state gaming landscape will completely change if the Navajo compact is passed as currently written.
    
The Albuquerque Journal reports  that the Navajo Nation hopes state lawmakers will approve the compact in the coming legislative session.
