The Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin is waiting to hear from the Bureau of Indian Affairs on its proposed off-reservation casino.

The BIA held public meetings last fall for the $132 million casino in Shullsburg. The draft environmental impact statement is expected in July.

“We know that the jobs, the construction, the economic boost that these casinos provide to these areas are important to the economy," tribal consultant Joseph Hunt told WXPR. "We remain optimistic.”

The BIA will take comments on the draft EIS before publishing a final EIS.
