Tribe: We can craft casino deal for Gov. Walker
Menominee Nation leader says tribe can broker deal on casino Wisconsin gov would approve
The Menominee Nation's chairman says he's confidant the tribe can craft an agreement on their proposed casino in Kenosha that Gov. Scott Walker would approve.
Craig Corn told the Kenosha News after Walker met with him as well as Potawatomi, Onedia and Ho-Chunk leaders Wednesday that the Menominee can come up with some way to offset those tribes' potential revenue losses.
Corn said the governor said he wants the tribe to address those concerns. He said he'll respond by next week.
Walker has said he won't approve the casino unless the community supports it, it doesn't result in any net increase in gambling and the state's 10 other tribes approve it. The Ho-Chunk and the Potawatomi oppose the project.
A Walker spokesman didn't immediately return a message Thursday.
