Quinn vetoes gambling expansion plan
State lawmakers will have to raise or fold after Gov. Pat Quinn’s veto of a bill to massively expand Illinois gambling.
After months of expressing displeasure with the bill, Quinn on Tuesday vetoed Senate Bill 1849, which would have allowed five new casinos in Illinois, including one in Chicago, and video gambling machines at racetracks.
Quinn wrote in his veto message that the bill falls far short on oversight and contains inadequate support for public education.
