Quinn Vetoes Gambling Expansion Bill, Override Uncertain


Supporters of a gambling expansion bill say they will try to override Governor Pat Quinn’s veto of the legislation, but the odds are not in their favor.

 

The original bill did not get enough votes to overturn Quinn, who says he is confident his veto will be upheld.

 

Quinn says the bill failed to include enough safeguards against corruption in the gambling industry.

 

But supporters of the bill say Quinn is wrong, and warn that his veto will cost the state millions of dollars and may be the last nail in the coffin of the struggling harness racing industry.
