No decision planned today on Kenosha casino

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is not expected to announce his decision Monday on the fate of a proposed new casino and Hard Rock International entertainment center in Kenosha.
Walker's spokesman Tom Evenson says in an email that the governor is still reviewing the proposal from the Menominee tribe and Hard Rock International and no decision is expected Monday.
Walker met with tribal and Hard Rock leaders last month and has been mulling his decision ever since.
Walker has said that all tribes in Wisconsin must agree on opening the casino, but the Ho-Chunk Nation and the Forest County Potawatomi, which operate their own lucrative casinos in Wisconsin, have repeatedly said they oppose competition in Kenosha.
Casino opponents scheduled a rally Tuesday at the Capitol to urge Walker to reject the proposal.
