Gov. Scott Walker is questioning whether the opening of a new casino in Kenosha would meet his requirement that there be no new net gambling in Wisconsin.

The Menomonie Nation and Hard Rock officials want to develop an $800 million casino complex at the former Dairyland Greyhound Park.

The tribe argues there would be no increase in gaming because it plans to close a small casino on reservation land and the new one would be located at Dairyland, a former gambling facility.

The Associated Press has gotten a copy of the governor's book, "Unintimidated: A Governor's Story and a Nation's Challenge," set for release on Nov. 19.

State lawmakers Tuesday are batting around a plan by Gov. Walker to cut property taxes by $100 million.

Gov. Scott Walker says the Mexican Consulate office in Chicago, that serves Wisconsin residents, has too long of a wait.

Gov. Walker and Republican leaders have unveiled a plan to provide $100 million in property tax relief.

Governor Walker now has a declared opponent in seeking another term. Mary Burke threw her hat into the ring Monday.

If you have watched television lately, you may have seen ads touting Gov. Scott Walker’s job creation efforts. He campaigned in 2010 on a promise to create 250,000 private sector jobs by 2015.

The business lobbying group, Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, has been running the ads across the state. They come 14 months before next year’s gubernatorial election – when the jobs picture promises to be an issue.

The ads reflect favorably on Gov. Walker’s tenure.
