GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Governor Scott Walker's decision is still pending on the Kenosha casino proposal made by the Menominee Indian Tribe.

In a statement released today, "Helping the people of Wisconsin create more jobs is my number one priority. With that in mind, I am directing the Secretary of the Department of Administration to commence extensive discussions with the tribal governments in an effort to maximize job creation in our state," said Governor Walker.

The Menominee Indian Tribe reacted to Governor Walker's awaited ruling, "Today is another step forward for the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin in our efforts to create 5,000 new jobs and achieve self-determination and financial stability for our tribe," said Craig Corn, Chairman of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin.

The proposed $800 million entertainment complex would be built on the old Dairyland Greyhound Track.
