Issues

Gaming license

On December 1, 2010, the Illinois Senate voted 31-20 in favor of a plan that allows for five additional casinos and electronic gaming at horse track facilities, increasing the number of licenses for casinos in the state to 15.

Under the plan, new casinos would operate in Chicago, southern Cook County, Danville, Rockford and Waukegan.

"Is it a huge expansion? Yes, I'm not going to deny it. But we have a huge deficit in the state of Illinois, we have got huge problems in the state of Illinois, so you don't look at little things to fix it, you look at big things to fix it," said the bill's sponsor, Sen. Terry Link, D-Waukegan.

Lawmakers like Frerichs would prefer another way to increase revenue. Frerichs said he'd like to see General Motors return to Danville, but that isn't happening.[3]
