February 19, 2015 statement from 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 and today’s expiration of the Bureau of Indian Affairs timeline extension.
“With today’s expiration of the deadline for consideration, Gov. Walker deserves credit for protecting Wisconsin taxpayers in rejecting the proposed Kenosha Casino. Throughout the twenty-plus year history of pursuit, a great number of promises were made by proponents of the Kenosha Casino, and in the end Gov. Walker wisely realized the risk didn’t exceed the reward and made the right decision in rejecting the off-reservation casino."
