Illinois Senate Delays Vote To Expand Casino Gaming

Updated:

The Illinois Senate is delaying a vote on another attempt to expand casino gambling.

Officials expected a vote as early as Thursday, but after a closed-door meeting Democrats put it off.

A spokesperson for the Senate President said supporters will continue discussions in efforts to get it passed.

A committee approved a plan yesterday to add five new casinos and put the tax revenue toward education.
