MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker says he hopes to make a decision on whether to allow the Menominee to open a new casino in Kenosha within a week.

Walker said Tuesday he's not setting any firm deadlines. He says given that the fight over the casino has been going on for about 20 years, a couple more days won't matter.

Walker this week is highlighting different issues he's considering as he mulls his decision. He says that the debate over what impact a new casino would have on job creation is one area he's looking closely at.

Walker says he wants to make sure he's done his due diligence in looking at all the issues and ensure that people understand where he's coming from once he decides.
