The Illinois Revenue and Jobs Alliance is calling on Governor Quinn to sign the bill to increase gaming. IRJA Chairman Bill Black penned a letter to the governor claiming the package would put 20-thousand people to work and add more than 200-million dollars to the state’s bank account.
He says the IRJA is willing to help craft a bill that will increase transparency and include ethical standards that Quinn is calling for. Blacks says the governor needs to get over the fact that adults should be able to make their own decisions when it comes to gambling:
The governor has said he will not sign a bill that lacks integrity and allows the gaming industry to make campaign contributions to lawmakers.
