Quinn Says His Veto on Gambling Expansion Will Stick, Wants to Rework Bill


Now that Governor Pat Quinn has vetoed the Gambling Bill sent to him by lawmakers, he says he’s open to discussing a new plan to expand gambling in Illinois.

 

Quinn says he has an outline of what HE wants to see in a gaming bill and thinks lawmakers should start all over on new legislation. 

 

Quinn feels legislators should start from scratch and put together a new gaming bill based on recommendations he’s made.

 

When legislators return in the Fall Session in November, they may try to over-ride the governor’s veto, but Quinn doesn’t believe they have enough votes to make that happen.

 

Quinn says he wants more regulation of the gaming industry and a ban on campaign contributions from casino operators to be a part of any new legislation.
