MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker is meeting with officials from the Menominee tribe and Hard Rock International about their proposal to open a new casino in Kenosha just two days before the governor says he plans to make a decision about the project.
The tribe submitted its proposal to Walker on Tuesday. It planned to release those documents at a Wednesday news conference following its closed-door meeting with Walker. Walker has said he will only approve the casino if Wisconsin’s other 10 tribes agree to it. But the Potawatomi and the Ho-Chunk, both of which operate lucrative casinos in the state, are opposed to letting the Menominee open one in Kenosha. Walker has said he will make his decision by the end of the week.
