Oneida Tribe approves proposed Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Kenosha

ONEIDA, WI (WTAQ) - The Oneida Tribe has approved the Menominee's proposed Hard Rock Kenosha casino. 

On Wednesday, leaders of the Menominee, Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk, and Oneida tribes met with Governor Walker to discuss the matter. 

The head of the Menominee Indians believes his tribe can come up with a plan that Governor Scott Walker will accept for its proposed casino in Kenosha.

Menominee chairman Craig Corn tells the Kenosha News his tribe could off-set possible gaming losses from the other three tribes, but he would not say how it might work. 

A final decision on the casino was recently placed on Governor Walker's lap. 

Walker has said that all 11 Wisconsin tribes must approve the Kenosha casino before he'll do the same. 

On Wednesday, Corn said he was confident he could strike a deal with the Potawatomi and Oneida, but a tribe he wouldn't name is quote, "pretty much dug in" against it. 

Last weekend, the chairman of the Ho-Chunk said his tribe is firmly opposed to the Kenosha casino, and would not change its mind.  

Corn said Walker spelled out a path to approval for the project, addressing a number of concerns between his tribe and others by a deadline Walker set of next Tuesday.
