Casino Supporters and Opponents Plan Capitol Rallies

A new casino proposed for Kenosha will attract people on both sides of the issue to Madison today.

Groups of people for and against a new casino at the former Dairyland Greyhound Park site will be in Madison today.

Opponents and supporters of a new Kenosha casino are trying to win over Gov. Scott Walker. The Governor has said he'll announce a decision regarding the proposed gambling complex this week. One of today's events is organized by conservative groups who oppose the role organized labor would play in construction of the new facility. Supporters planning a Capitol visit today include members of the Menominee Nation, which has contracted with Hard Rock International to develop the new gaming facility.
