Gambling bill fails in House; Tryon says it's not dead
SPRINGFIELD – Gambling legislation designed to pick up new support so it could survive a veto failed, 58-53, to clear the Illinois House on Wednesday amid opposition from Gov. Pat Quinn and blistering criticism from the state’s top gambling regulator.
Though votes against the measure outweighed votes for the bill, State Rep. Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, said the bill is not yet dead.
The bill still can come back for a vote because it received the more-than-40 votes necessary to put it on postponed consideration, Tryon said.
