Wis. gov questions whether casino boosts gambling


MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is questioning whether the opening of a new casino in Kenosha would meet his requirement that there be no new net gambling in the state.

The Menominee tribe argues there would be no increase because it plans to close a small casino on reservation land and the new one would be located at the closed Dairyland Greyhound Park.

Walker emphasizes in a statement Friday that the new casino is projected to generate about $454 million a year and have 3,100 slot machines. Dairyland made about $20 million annually at its height and the reservation casino has only 30 slot machines.

Walker asks, "Do these two smaller operations actually offset the increase in gambling in the much larger proposed casino?"

Walker's decision is expected next week.
