Illinois Senate Working to Improve Odds for Gambling Bill
Supporters of a gambling expansion proposal are making changes to the legislation in an attempt to improve its chances with the Illinois Legislature and Gov. Pat Quinn.
Rikeesha Phelon is a spokeswoman for Senate President John Cullerton. She says Cullerton plans to strip language from the bill that would legalize Internet gaming and let lawmakers consider it as a separate measure.
Quinn has vetoed previous gambling bills. He says Internet gambling didn’t have a proper review and he was "not excited about it at all." Legislators who supported previous gambling bills also had concerns.
