Quinn still has almost 60 days on gambling
Maybe you remember how a massive gambling expansion plan that was approved in 2011 was locked up in a drawer until early 2013?
Well, the paperwork on a proposal to give 1,200 slot machines to Arlington Park and create five new Illinois casinos just technically landed on Gov. Pat Quinn's desk last week.
He has 60 days to act, though Quinn has suggested he'll almost certainly veto it.
Still, the legislation is just kind of lingering out there until Quinn does something. State Sen. Terry Link, a Waukegan Democrat, has said he wants to work with the governor to find a solution.
But the governor says he's not going to deal with gambling until the state's pension costs are managed.
