New Gambling Plan Proposed

Share this post

A new gambling expansion plan is being proposed across the state line. The Illinois Senate is considering a measure calling for five new casinos including one in the south suburbs and Chicago, as well as Danville, Rockford, and Lake County, Illinois, and slot machines at horse racing tracks. It also sets up online gambling, called “i-gaming". The measure also includes a provision Illinois Ggovernor Pat Quinn has been seeking -- a ban on political contributions from gaming interests. The bill passed an Illinois Senate committee and now heads to the Senate floor for a vote.
