Quinn Still Critical Of Gambling Bill, Won't Say If He Will Veto It


The fate of a gambling expansion bill is still uncertain… even though Governor Pat Quinn remains critical of aspects of the legislation. 

 

Lawmakers approved the bill to authorize five new casinos, including the first-ever in the City of Chicago, and to allow slot machines at horse racing tracks.  Quinn has been vocally opposed to the slots at racetracks… but would not say if he would veto the bill over that issue. 

 

The governor says voters want “integrity” in legalized gambling, and expressed concern that the bill does not do enough to prevent corruption related to the gaming industry.
