MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin state Senate's top Republican says he doesn't want to see a new tribal casino in Kenosha.
The Menominee Nation is trying to persuade Gov. Scott Walker to green-light their plans for an off-reservation casino at a former dog track in the city. Walker says approval hinges on new net gambling, community support and consensus from Wisconsin's other tribes. The Ho-Chunk Nation and the Forest County Potawatomi have both objected to the proposal.
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, a Juneau Republican, released a column Wednesday saying approval could lead to a proliferation of off-reservation gambling. He also says Republican job creation policies will do more to help Kenosha's economy than a casino.
