MILWAUKEE (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says all 11 Wisconsin tribes must agree before any new off-reservation casino is opened in the state.
Walker told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial board on Thursday that tribes must be unanimous before approving a new off-reservation casino. Walker says that is "absolutely" a "difficult wall to hurdle."
Walker's approval is required under federal law before any tribe can open an off-reservation casino.
Walker's comments are a blow to the Menominee tribe's effort since the 1990s to open an off-reservation casino in Kenosha.
The Potawatomi tribe has long been fighting the proposal for fear it would cut into business in their Milwaukee casino.
