Gaming Bill Veto Could Be Imminent


A bill to substantially expand gambling in the state of Illinois has once again cleared the House and is headed to the Senate, but Governor Pat Quinn is already signaling that a veto could be imminent.

 

The revised bill is scaled back somewhat from a gaming plan that cleared the legislature last year, but was never sent to Quinn because of his vocal opposition.

 

It would create five new casinos and allow slot machines at race tracks, but not at the State Fair Grandstand. But Quinn says it still fails to do enough to address possible corruption tied to the gaming industry.
