Regulators Say Expanded Gambling Would Increase Corruption


Illinois senators seeking to eliminate a major stumbling block to new casinos and slot machines in the state went toe-to-toe Wednesday with regulators who say expanded gambling could open the door to political corruption and organized crime.

 

Gaming officials said they're worried the proposal being considered by the Senate wouldn't give them enough regulatory authority over a Chicago casino - a concern lawmakers said was unfounded.

 

Regulators also said they don't have enough staff to take on the additional workload and that hiring can take months because of state rules.
