Gov. Walker undecided on tribal casino approvalMarch 10, 2014 8:01 PM by Ray Poirier
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker still hasn’t decided whether to approve a casino that is being sought by the Menominee tribe. The nearly $900 million project would locate the casino at a defunct dog track in Kenosha.
Walker has asked the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs to extend the original deadline for his decision from Aug. 23 to Feb. 19, 2015.
He said in the letter he needs more time to “develop and analyze independent data, and facilitate discussions with the interested parties.”

Since the passage in Nevada of the law to liberalize and modernize slot machines, commonly referred to as the Skills Based Slot Machines law, much has been said about how current slot machine products are not in keeping with the desires and interest of the current and coming generations of casino patrons and how the new creative games are needed to attract younger patrons.
