BOWLER, Wis. (AP) — In a story April 23 about a dispute over a proposal by the Ho-Chunk Nation to expand a northern Wisconsin casino, The Associated Press reported that in 2015, Gov. Scott Walker refused to give the Menominee Nation permission to build a second casino on trust land in Kenosha after rival tribes complained. Walker blocked the land from being placed in trust, which in turn blocked the casino project.
