As every one already knows it, the casino called Potawatomi Bingo Casino in Milwaukee is managed by the Potawatomis tribe. And now that it is question of opening and managing another casino, endowed with rooms of slot machines, in Kenosha, another Indian tribe, the Menominee to be precise, has let known that it wants also to control it.
So, the project of a new gaming institution constitutes a bone of contention between both Indian communities. In fact, the said project of casino could constitute a real threat for the one already existing.
According to the Potawatomi tribe, they will lose more than third of their income, in case the casino in Kenosha would be operational. It’s the same for the city of Milwaukee, which has forecasted a loss of 30% to 40 % of its income in taxes…
This figure is below of that of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, which declared a range of 8% to 20% in terms of loss. Now, the ball is between the hands of the Governor Scott Walker, who has to give his opinion on this case within the next coming days.
