10-26-13 governor delays casino decision

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker has delayed his announcement on whether he will approve the Menominee Nation's new casino in Kenosha.  Walker spokesman Tom Evenson says the governor won't announce his decision Friday as originally planned. He says Walker needs more time to review information the Menominee submitted.  Walker wants all of the state's tribes to approve the $800 million casino before he will allow it. Two tribes, the Ho-Chunk and Potawatomi, have steadfastly opposed it.  Menominee Chairman Craig Corn says he's glad Walker is doing his due diligence. But Ho-Chunk President Jon Greendeer says the governor should make a decision quickly so all the tribes can move on and delaying the announcement gives the Menominee false hope.
