WE’RE AT THE BREAKING NEWS
DESK FOLLOWING NEW DEVELOPMENTS
IN A PROPOSED CASINO IN KENOSHA.
COULD WE BE CLOSER TO A
DECISION?
TONIGHT 12 NEWS’ KENT WAINSCOTT
FILLS US IN.
THIS IS THE NEW AMENDED
GAMING COMPACT.
IT IS ONE THAT HAS BEEN CALLED
THE RICHEST GAMING COMPACT IN
STATE HISTORY.
IT SWEETENS THE POT FOR THE
GOVERNOR TO APPROVE THE CASINO.
THERE ARE SOME OBSTACLES.
THE MENOMINEE AGREES TO PAY THE
STATE 7.5% OF THE ANNUAL
WINNINGS OF ANY FACILITY IN
KENOSHA.
IF THE POTTAWATOMIE PAYMENTS
OF
OUR LESS THAN 30 SOME .5 MILLION
DOLLARS, THE MENOMINEE TRIBE
WOULD MAKE UP THE DIFFERENCE.
— LESS THAN
$30.5 MILLION, THE
MENOMINEE TRIBE WOULD MAKE UP
THE DIFFERENCE.
WE WILL SEE A GREAT INFLUX
AND JOBS AND TOURISM
FROM
CHICAGO AND SURROUNDING AREAS.
THIS COMPACT IS NOT REMOVE

THERE IS ALSO A LAWSUIT THAT
COULD IMPACT THE DECISION, BUT
THE MENOMINEE BELIEVES THIS
COMPACT TWICE — PROVIDES A
CLEAR PATH TO APPROVE THE
KENOSHA CASINO.
IT NOW GOES TO THE BUREAU OF
INDIAN AFFAIRS FOR APPROVAL.
