January 23, 2015 statement form Brian J. Nemoir, Executive Director of Enough Already! WI, a coalition opposed to the expansion of off-reservation gaming, regarding Governor Walker’s rejection of the Kenosha Casino

“Today Gov. Walker made the right decision after an exhaustive review in determining that the risks created by the proposed Kenosha Casino to the taxpayers of Wisconsin was too great. 

In 2004 then-Gov. Jim Doyle signed a compact that could put taxpayers at risk for hundreds of millions if a Kenosha Casino were to be built.  In the end, Wisconsin is well-served by the difficult decision Gov. Walker made to protect taxpayers.”
