All bets for gambling expansion might be off the table for now. State rep Robert Rita says he's making a few changes before the bill will come up for a vote. He won't go into a whole lot of detail but he says a few people at the bargaining table have concerns about a provision that bans casino owners from giving campaign contributions.
That's been a sticking point for Governor Quinn and any changes that would reverse that idea could face a veto if the bill reaches Quinn's desk. Rita says he hopes to tweak the bill, reach a compromise, and call it for a vote before they wrap up on Friday.
