Gambling, Same-Sex Marriage Bills ApparentlyDead For This Session

Some of the major items on the legislature's to-do list apparently won't get done this session.  Rep. Robert Rita, sponsor of a gambling expansion bill, says he will not call it for a vote, dashing the hopes of Chicago city officials who had hoped to win authorization for the city's first casino.


And reports from the Capitol Friday night indicated that the same-sex marriage bill also would not be called for a vote.  The bill cleared the Senate earlier this year, but languished just short of the 60 votes it needed for final passage in the House.
