Gov. Walker wants extension on Kenosha casino decision

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker wants six more months to make a decision on whether to approve the Menominee tribe's Kenosha casino project.

If approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, a decision on the casino would not have to be made until after the November election. Walker released a letter Friday co-signed by the tribe asking the BIA to extend the deadline from Aug. 23 to Feb. 19.

Walker has stated that he will not approve the casino until all 11 tribes agree to it. Ho-Chunk and Forest County Potawatomi tribes have continued to oppose the proposal.
