Wisconsin Bill Threatens Beloit Casino Plans
As reported by the Wisconsin State Journal: "A bill in front of the State Senate could jeopardize a plan to put a casino in Beloit. The bill would put off-reservation gaming compacts in front of Senate and Assembly members for approval. Right now, the Governor alone has the authority to approve those casinos. "For the last seven years, two tribes have been working together to build a casino in Beloit. The city passed a referendum back in 2000, in favor of it.
"The project spokesman, Joe Hunt, says the new casino would create 3,000 jobs in Beloit and help the Bad River Band of Lake Superior and Saint Croix Chippewa tribes."
