KENOSHA (WKOW) -- Friday is Governor Scott Walker's self-imposed deadline to decide on the Menominee tribe's proposal for a casino in Kenosha.
Today, builders in the Kenosha area tried to sway the governor's vote.
They say approval of the project would lead to 1,400 construction jobs.
"250,000 jobs he wanted to bring to Wisconsin in his four years, this sure would be a big way of getting there," said construction company owner John Camosy.
"My overriding concern is the loss of jobs. There's no question that I think it would have a negative impact on jobs here in the City of Milwaukee," said Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, referring to the potential effect on the Potawatomi casino in Milwaukee.
The Potawatomi and Ho-chunk tribes are both opposed to the plan.
Governor Walker wanted a consensus from all the tribes in the state as one requirement before approving the project.
