MADISON, Wis. - The state of Wisconsin and the Menominee Tribe have agreed to a new gambling compact over a proposed casino in Kenosha.
The compact requires approval from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
In a letter dated Tuesday, Gov. Scott Walker told the assistant secretary of Interior for Indian Affairs that the gambling compact was recently amended "to help define the potential economic and fiscal impact of the proposed Kenosha casino."
Walker's letter says the amended compact does not indicate whether he supports or opposes the proposal.
Menominee Chairwoman Laurie Boivin says in a statement that the governor now has a "clear path" to approve the project.
WISN-TV reports that among other things, the compact says the tribe would pay the state 7.5 percent of its net winnings from a Kenosha facility.
