Proposed casino gets federal approval

The Menominee tribe’s plans for an off-reservation Indian casino in Kenosha were approved Friday by the U.S. Interior Department — an action that immediately sparked comments from Gov. Scott Walker, who has veto power over the project.

“Given the approval by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs for the proposed Menominee casino, we will move forward with evaluating this casino using the criteria previously laid out by my administration,” said Walker. “The three criteria are: no new net gaming, community support and consensus among the 11 sovereign nations.”
