KENOSHA (WKOW) -- The Menominee Indian tribe says a proposed off-reservation casino in Kenosha could dramatically improve its members' quality of life.
Menominee County currently ranks last in Wisconsin when it comes to health, and it has the highest unemployment rate.
Tribe members say those numbers would improve if Governor Walker approves the project.
Tribal chairman Craig Corn says revenue generated by the casino would support health care, jobs, housing and education.
"We'd provide scholarships for all our tribal members to be able to get an education and further education. Whether it's at the College of Menominee Nation or anywhere else, we'd invest a lot of the money in there."
The tribe also wants to renovate old buildings, expand a clinic and create more housing on the reservation so more members can live on tribal land.
