SPRINGFIELD, IL-(Effingham Radio)- Local VFWs and American Legion posts across Illinois could soon add video poker machines, even if their city or town doesn’t allow them.
State Senator Terry Link has a plan that would allow local veterans organizations to install the machines in their bars or halls.
Link says adding the machines could help the groups make up for dwindling membership.
Local leaders say they’re all for helping vets, but worry about another state law that limits local control.
