Quinn to decide within 60 days for the casino legislation

... 09 July 2012

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn was presented the Senate Bill 1849 and he has to take the decision for the proposed casinos for Chicago and the south suburbs within the next sixty days. Expansion of the ten existing Illinois casinos, permits for slot machines at the horse racing tracks and five new casinos throughout the state are on the legislation agenda. The Democratic governor has to give approval for the bill to become law, use the veto power or make necessary amendments within the next sixty days after which he wont be able to do anything as the bill would become law even without his signatures. On several occasions, Quinn had expressed that he would reject the proposal as he was concerned more about the ethical drawbacks that could affect the state in an adverse manner. Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago expected the Legislature to satisfy Quinns ethical issues. He wont send the 2011 casino plan to Quinn after the governors suggestion to veto the same. A south suburban casino could be permitted in Bremen, Bloom, Rich, Calumet, Thornton or Worth township that could facilitate 1,600 gaming positions, i.e. 20% less than those at Ameristar Casino in East Chicago. The number of gamblers and casino revenues at Northwest Indianas five casinos could come down with the two new casinos across the state that would decrease the amount of funds from taxes on casino wagers and admissions that are helpful for local and state governments.
