WBEZ: Rep. Lou Lang Moving Forward with Illinois Gaming “Clean-Up” Legislation

(Chicago, IL) — With no detailed feedback still from Gov. Pat Quinn‘s office, Illinois House Deputy Majority Leader Lou Lang (D-Skokie) is moving forward with a “clean=up bill” that will attempt to address some of the governor’s public criticism of Illinois gaming legislation that will soon land on Quinn’s desk.

WBEZ radio’s Kristen McQueary has the story:

“Despite delays and debunked predictions—and a never-ending wait for Gov. Pat Quinn’s decision on a gambling expansion bill—supporters of expanded gambling in Illinois say they expect to find common ground by Oct. 25, the first day of the fall veto session.

The bill, stalled for months due to policy differences, political infighting and Quinn’s reluctance to increase gambling venues, remains a top priority.

But the waiting game may be ending soon. Unless Quinn outlines his concerns “in short order,” legislative leaders will present him with their own version of a clean-up gaming bill, known as a trailer bill, that will tighten control over the proposed Chicago-owned casino, according to State Rep. Lou Lang (D-Skokie), House sponsor of the bill.”
