Slots At Horsetracks May Be Back In Play


A proposal to allow slot machines at race tracks may not be dead after all. 

 

Governor Pat Quinn has long rejected the idea of adding slot machines to horse racing facilities.  But a report on the Capitol Fax website this week suggests Quinn has softened that opposition.  The governor’s office still calls the idea of slots at racetracks, quote, a “distraction,” but isn’t explicitly ruling out the idea. 

 

Supporters say it would be a way to raise needed revenue and give a lift to the ailing horse racing industry.
