Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is giving the green light to a proposed Ho-Chunk Nation casino in Beloit. Evers said yesterday (Wednesday) that he concurs with the U-S Department of Interior’s decision that 32 acres of land should be taken into trust by the federal government for the project. The Beloit Gaming and Entertainment Center is expected to create more than 1,500 jobs in the casino-resort and 2,000 construction jobs. Evers and the Ho-Chunk Nation need to complete an amendment to the gaming contract and the Department of Interior must issue its final determination on whether to take the land into trust.
