Oneida tribe offered money to back Kenosha casino

By  | 

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Oneida tribe would collect at least $3 million a year in banking fees in exchange for its support of the proposed Menominee casino in Kenosha.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports ( ) the agreement also gives the Oneida tribe the first chance to help finance the first phase of the casino, which the Menominee tribe hopes to build with help from Hard Rock International.

The Menominee are promising in return not to advertise the Kenosha casino in broadcast markets north of Milwaukee, or in daily papers or on billboards in the Green-Bay-Appleton market. That's to avoid competing with the Oneida tribe's casino near Green Bay.

Gov. Scott Walker has said he'll approve the Kenosha casino only if all Wisconsin tribes support it. Two tribes are currently opposed to it.
