While the Governor has said no to the Kenosha casino, we know his resolve on this matter will continue to be tested. Right now the Ho-Chunk Tribe is pushing to get federal approval for an off-reservation casino in Beloit, which will be yet another expansion of gambling in our state.
We believe the Governor's criteria are excellent and should serve him well in considering any casino proposal in our state. Even though the temptation will be to make each casino proposal about jobs and the economy, the Governor should return to a firm commitment to these guiding principles. Wisconsin’s gaming market is already saturated. We don’t need another casino anywhere in our state.
