January 20, 2015 statement form Brian J. Nemoir, Executive Director of Enough Already! WI, a coalition opposed to the expansion of off-reservation gaming, regarding the Menominee Tribe’s compact amendment with the state regarding the proposed Kenosha Casino and the continued inherent risk the proposed casino presents:

“Today’s announcement of a compact amendment with the Menominee Tribe reaffirms the inherent risk the proposed Kenosha Casino presents to the state’s taxpayers.  Enough Already! WI applauds Gov. Walker’s efforts to place the interests of the state’s taxpayers at the forefront, and his continued emphasis on weighing the legal exposure and potential negative budgetary implications as he nears February 19th deadline for final consideration.”
