Governor Pat Quinn says lawmakers' inability to pass a gambling bill last week is proof that they want more integrity in the proposal. The governor and legislature have yet to agree on how much new gaming to add in Illinois, how it should be regulated, and other factors. The latest attempt narrowly failed in the Illinois house.
He says lawmakers need to work with, not against him, to come up with a compromise.
Quinn has said he would support a casino in Chicago and a few other select locations, but does not want to see slot machines at the racetracks.
