Oneida (AP) — The Menominee’s casino proposal has the support of an additional American Indian tribe in Wisconsin.
The Oneida Nation has signed off on the Kenosha casino, leaving the Potawatomi and Ho-Chunk as the only tribes that haven’t given the project their backing.
Gov. Scott Walker has said the Menominee will need the support of the other 10 tribes in Wisconsin to get his endorsement.
The Menominee want to partner with Hard Rock International to build an $800 million casino and entertainment complex at the old Dairyland Greyhound dog track in Kenosha.
WLUK-TV reported Oneida chairman Edward Delgado said the decision to support the Menominee project came after studying casino revenue and visitor information.
Walker says he’ll make a decision by Tuesday.
