Refined Plan For Illinois Gambling Expansion

Updated:

 

Trying to get gambling expansion back on track the Illinois Senate has approved a refined plan.

Lawmakers approved two similar plans before but Governor Pat Quinn rejected them, wanting more ethical safeguards. This time lawmakers added a ban on political contributions.     
     
The legislation would still add five new casinos and allow slot machines at racetracks, including the Quad City Downs.
