Springfield, IL -(Effingham Radio)- Can Illinois gamble its way out of its budget troubles?
Illinois lawmakers last week met to talk about a gambling expansion proposal that would include a casino for the city of Chicago.
State Rep. Mike Zalewski told the State Journal Register that there will be a lot of talk about adding casinos in the state this fall, regardless of who wins the Governor’s race.
No matter who wins the Governor’s race, the state is facing a billion-dollar hole in the state budget.
