Competing rallies held at State Capitol over proposed Kenosha casino

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Supporters and opponents of the proposed Kenosha casino will make their final arguments Tuesday, with competing rallies at the State Capitol. 

An event is planned by Tea Party groups and other conservatives, urging Republican Governor Scott Walker to reject the Menominee tribe's Hard Rock resort. 

Organizers say the $800 million project would cost the state jobs, while creating new money for union members who build the casino and work in it. 

The Menominee tribe will hold a gathering to encourage Walker to approve the Kenosha project.  They say it would create 3,500 jobs and be good for the Wisconsin economy. 

Walker has the final say on the new casino. He told reporters in Milwaukee Monday that he plans to announce his decision in a couple days. 

The governor said he's still looking over the project's details, and balance concerns about jobs at the new casino, and possible job losses at other Wisconsin tribal facilities.
