Governor Scott Walker is still weighing whether to approve a major casino project in the Kenosha area.


Gov. Scott Walker says he’s going through volumes of information that the Menominee gave him, in their proposal for a Kenosha casino.


The Menominee tribe has until Tuesday to win unanimous support for a new casino in Kenosha.

Milwaukee leaders say the city could lose thousands of jobs, if the Menominee tribe is allowed to build a new casino.

Republican Mike Ellis says the governor is contradicting the principle of free enterprise, by putting certain restrictions on a potential casino.


Supporters of a tribal casino in Kenosha turned up the heat on Gov. Scott Walker Tuesday.
