Gov. Scott Walker told a Milwaukee boradcast reporter he is looking for a creative way to move the Menominee Tribal Casino proposal for Kenosha forward.

Walker was talking to TODAY’S TMJ4’s Charles Benson.

The casino, its developers say, will create about 5,000 tmeporary and permanent jobs.

The Menominee proposal has received federal approval and now only awaits the governor’s OK. Walker has said he wants certain conditions to be met in order to approve the casino, including that all 11 tribes in Wisconsin agree with it. Two tribes, the Pottawatomie and the Ho-Chunk have said they object to the Kenosha casino.

The casino would be located on the site of the former Dairyland Greyhound Park in Kenosha.

Western Kenosha County municipalities Salem and Randall passed resolutions supporting the casino. State Rep. Samantha Kerkman, whose district includes most of Western Kenosha County, has urged Walker to approve the casino.
