Quinn Expected To Veto Gaming Bill Again


For the second time in two years, Governor Pat Quinn is apparently set to veto a bill to expand gambling in Illinois. 

 

The latest bill to reach his desk was originally passed in 2011, but was held in the Senate for months after Quinn threatened to veto it.  The legislature passed a revised bill in 2012 and sent it to Quinn, who made good on the veto threat. 

 

Then on the last day of the legislative session last week, Senate President John Cullerton released the original 2011 bill and sent it to Quinn.  But a spokesperson for the governor says he will veto that bill as well, over concerns that it does not take enough precautions against corruption in the gaming industry.
