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.”

The expansion of USFantasy to racetracks and other wagering venues beyond Nevada is just a matter of time. USFantasy will probably be in business by August with a menu of daily fantasy sports wagering concepts based on a pari-mutuel platform identical to that used at racetracks just about everywhere. But this approach requires that attorneys general see DSF as a game of skill rather than gambling.
