I want to hear from you! Tell Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to approve the Muskegon Casino

The fate of the Muskegon Casino, and hundreds of full-time jobs, lies in the hands of our governor.

The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians have been working for more than a decade to build a $180 million casino in Fruitport Township. The casino would add up to 1,500 full-time and 1,500 construction jobs, and generate enormous economic activity in Muskegon County.

In late 2020, the U.S. Department of Interior granted the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians casino project approval to acquire off-reservation land. After receiving approval from the federal government, the project must now be approved by Gov. Whitmer. If the governor approves, there will be a casino built in Muskegon County.

The proposed casino has wide-ranging bipartisan support from the Muskegon County community, and it would be an extreme disappointment if this project does not move forward — especially for residents who have waited patiently for more than ten years.

I have already encouraged Gov. Whitmer to consider the positive economic impact of the proposed casino and quickly approve it so construction can begin. The governor needs to hear from you about the positive impact this casino will have on Muskegon County.
