A plan to add more five casinos across the state is still in limbo, despite the fact lawmakers sent a plan to Governor Quinn's desk. Quinn says he refuses to sign a "slip shot" bill that doesn't include proper oversight. He says allowing gaming lobbyists to give campaign contributions to politicians is a prescription for disaster. Quinn has threatened to veto the bill in the past but the House has enough votes to override him. The Senate would need to pick up six more votes.
The proposal includes a casino in Rockford.
