Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) will be hiring an outside group to study the Menominee Nation off-reservation casino.

Walker said an independent group will help determine whether to approve the $800 million casino in Kenosha.

"To try and sort through the numbers that each of the competing sides are talking about to try and really get a handle on what are the most objective numbers and how can we negotiate some sort of an agreement,” the governor told Fox 11 News

The Bureau of Indian Affairs approved the Menominee casino under the two-part determination provisions of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. The final decision rests with Walker, who originally promised an answer last fall.
