The Potawatomi tribe recently reached a deal with the state allowing the tribe’s casinos, including Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee, and affiliate locations to offer event wagering on sporting events. A press release from Governor Tony Evers’ office states a compact amendment was signed between both parties, which is now headed to the U.S. Department of Interior for a forty-five-day review. No additional state or county approvals for the deal are needed. The governor also extended the terms of the tribe’s compact through twenty sixty-one.
The governor has total control over these compact agreements. Because we have no input or oversight whatsoever on this issue from our elected legislators, we will soon have sports betting at every casino in the state. Once again Governor Evers has made a deal that requires citizens to lose in order for the state to win. That’s an odd philosophy of governing.
