MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Scott Walker said he's still trying to work out a deal before a Feb. 19 deadline that would allow the Menominee Tribe to open a new casino in Kenosha.
Walker was asked Monday about WISN-TV report that said the state and Menominee Tribe are close to reaching agreement on a new gambling compact.
Walker said "That's just one more step in terms of what may or may not happen."
He said the "biggest stumbling block" is trying to reach a deal that would not result in the state having to refund $100 million in potential lost revenue to the Potawatomi Tribe if the Kenosha Casino moves forward.
The proposed $800 million Hard Rock hotel and casino would be located at the former site of the Dairyland Greyhound Track.
