Whether a casino should be allowed in Kenosha remains an open questionSubmitted: 11/08/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Whether a casino should be allowed in Kenosha remains an open question.

Governor Scott Walker isn't saying when he will make his decision on the Kenosha casino.

He's hopeful to have something to announce ``in the next couple days.''

Walker was asked Thursday about where he stands on whether to grant or reject the Menominee tribe's proposal with Hard Rock International to open a new casino complex in Kenosha.

Walker says legally he could take up to a year to decide.

He says he doesn't think it will take that long, but he is going to take the time necessary to explore ways to maximize the potential for creating jobs with the project.

The Ho-Chunk and Forest County Potawatomi tribes oppose the project, largely because they say it will cut into profits at their casinos.
