Walker encourages more discussion over casino
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker still isn’t saying when he will make a decision on whether to approve a new casino in Kenosha. Walker issued a statement Monday saying he will “invest the time necessary to reach a positive solution for the state.” Walker says as talks continue they will focus on ways to maximize job creation. But he says criteria he set out two years ago, including consensus from all tribes, remains a focus of his administration. The Ho-Chunk and the Forest County Potawatomi tribes oppose the proposal from the Menominee tribe to open the $800 million casino. Potawatomi attorney Jeff Crawford says the tribe expects Walker to find the project does not meet his criteria and is not in the best interest of the state.
