A report released by Governor Quinn's office refutes claims that gambling expansion will bring in one-billion dollars in additional revenues. In fact, the report says the state can only expect an increase of about 160-million dollars a year. Representative Lou Lang says that's still a lot of money.
Lang says they can disagree about the numbers all day, but the fact is gaming expansion will put thousands of people to work. Quinn's report supports his idea that slots at racetracks will take away from gaming profits. He's announced publicly that he doesn't support the proposal, but Lang says the governor still hasn't come to the table to negotiate a better plan.
