Final decision coming by Friday on Kenosha casino
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Menominee tribe and Hard Rock International leaders say they told Gov. Scott Walker they have met his criteria to approve a new casino in Kenosha.
Walker plans to announce his decision by the end of the week.
Menominee Chairman Craig Corn says Walker did not indicate during the meeting whether he would approve their plans to open an $800 million entertainment complex at the old Dairyland Greyhound dog track in Kenosha.
Corn says he expects there to be an ongoing dialogue with Walker's administration this week.
Walker is requiring that all Wisconsin tribes approve of the deal, but the Ho-Chunk and Potawatomie remain opposed.
Walker's spokeswoman issued a statement saying only that the governor is expected to make his decision later this week.
