From the Beloit Daily News: “Parties involved with the Ho-Chunk Nation’s Beloit casino project are testing the waters to see if there’s support to move the plan ahead at the federal level after President-elect Donald Trump takes office January 20.
The move follows the tribe’s request to Beloit city staff asking for local state legislators to reaffirm support for the project and to help line up Wisconsin’s congressional delegation behind the plan. If approved at the federal level, the plan would head for Gov. Scott Walker’s desk for approval or denial.”
WFA president Julaine Appling says, “This would be the first off-reservation casino in WI—opening a huge door for many more. The Ho-Chunk are proposing a 145,000 square foot gaming facility, with a 300-room hotel and 35,000 square foot convention center right off I-90/39 in Beloit.”
