MADISON (WXOW) -- The fight over a proposed off-reservation Kenosha casino for the Menominee Indian Tribe is heating up.
The group Enough Already Wisconsin is running television ads statewide in an attempt to kill the project.
"The Kenosha application has to be the weakest ever approved by the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs)," said Brian Nemoir, Executive Director of Enough Already Wisconsin. "They don't have anyone in place for the financing, they don't have anyone to develop the project, they don't have anybody to operate the project."
Nemoir is one of the featured guests on Capitol City Sunday this weekend. He represents interests that are clearly opposed to any casino expansion in the state, but refuses to divulge just who those interests are.
"I made an agreement with the folks that I represent on this issue, the folks that have come to me with deep interests in this and there are numerous, that I would neither confirm or deny anyone that's involved in this because its important that the message gets out and not any other issues on this," said Nemoir.
Rep. Chris Taylor (D-Madison) is also on the show to talk about the bill she's circulating to set up a statewide protocol for the independent review of police officer-involved deaths.
"From the community's perspective, when you have officers investigating their own colleagues and you have determinations being made by your peers, who you work with every single day, there can be a perception and maybe an actual bias," said Rep. Taylor. "So we're really just trying to get at that."
Rep. Taylor also talks about what she can do to convince Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen (R-Wisconsin) to get on board with the bill. Van Hollen put out a statement on Thursday saying that local district attorney's already provide an independent review of officer-involved deaths and that Rep. Taylor's bill is unnecessary and unworkable.
Capitol City Sunday airs at 9:00 a.m. on WXOW.
