KESHENA, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker says he might make a decision by the end of the week on whether the Menominee Nation’s plans for an off-reservation casino in Kenosha can proceed. Walker has said his approval hinges on three criteria – no net increase in gambling, community support and approval from the state’s 10 other tribes. The Forest County Potawatomi and the Ho-Chunk Nation oppose the project. Walker has given the Menominee until Tuesday to reach a consensus. A Department of Administration spokeswoman says Walker plans to meet with the Menominee on Wednesday. WLUK-TV initially reported the governor extended the deadline for tribal consensus but later corrected that report.
