A coalition of business leaders, public officials and members of Wisconsin's construction industry is coming to Madison to urge Gov. Scott Walker to approve a new casino in Kenosha.
The group plans a news conference Thursday at the state Capitol to emphasize jobs the casino would create and the budget benefits for state and local governments.
Walker is reviewing various issues as he decides whether to grant the Menominee Nation's plans for the off-reservation casino.
In his daily update Wednesday, Walker discussed community support, one of those factors.
The Republican governor notes voters in Kenosha County in 2004 passed a referendum supporting a casino, and the City of Kenosha did the same in 1998.
Walker also cited votes opposing the casino by the Milwaukee County Board and Milwaukee City Council.
