MADISON (WKOW) -- The top Republican in the Wisconsin state senate says he doesn't want to see a new tribal casino in Kenosha.
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, a Juneau Republican, in a written column Wednesday said approval could lead to a proliferation of off-reservation gambling, and he added that Republican job creation policies will do more to help Kenosha's economy than a casino.
The Menominee Nation has been pushing a plan for an off-reservation casino at a former Kenosha dog track.
Gov. Walker says his approval hinges on new net gambling, community support and consensus from Wisconsin's other tribes. The Ho-Chunk Nation and the Forest County Potawatomi have both objected to the proposal.
