Oneida Nation had $744 million impact on region, study shows

NORTHEAST WISCONSIN (WBAY) - The Oneida Nation had a $744 million economic impact in Brown County and Outagamie County, according to the results of study by St. Norbert College.

The study found the Oneida Nation generates an average $89 million in government revenue per year, with $33.4 million going to state and local government. That's from income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes and other fees.

The Oneida Nation is responsible for 5,465 jobs in the region.

The last impact study was completed in 2006. The Oneida Nation says there has been a $300 million increase in output since then.

“The Oneida Nation has come from humble beginnings, and we owe a great debt of gratitude to our previous leaders of our Nation for having the foresight to invest in our people and to forge relationships with our neighbors," says Oneida Nation Chairman Tehassi Hill.
