HOW CAN I HELP?
Naskila Gaming enjoys broad support from our neighbors, community, and many elected officials. In recent years, more than 70 civic and business groups have passed resolutions supporting Naskila. And in 2019, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation that would have kept Naskila open. In fact, a bipartisan group of 19 U.S. Representatives from Texas signed a letter urging the Senate to pass that bill and recognize Naskila’s many benefits to the Texas economy.
Unfortunately, Governor Greg Abbott and Senator John Cornyn both spoke out against the bill and helped kill it in the U.S. Senate. Their vocal opposition is putting Naskila at risk. They need to hear that Texans support Naskila and the economic activity it generates.
Here is a sample message you can deliver over the phone or email:
Please support the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas and allow Naskila Gaming to stay open. As a Texas leader, you have a responsibility to protect Texas jobs. East Texas needs Naskila, and the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe should be given the same opportunity to operate electronic bingo as other tribes in Texas. Please join other Texas leaders from both parties and support Naskila.
