SPRINGFIELD, IL - If the Illinois legislature expands gambling in the state, you can add the village of Lynwood to the list of towns interested in a casino. Danville, Rockford, and Waukegan have already expressed their interests. Similar interest has come from south suburban communities such as Calumet City, Country Club Hills, and Dolton,

"If your real intention is to create economic stimulus in a region that's economically depressed or needs a boost, then we fit that right here in this area," said the Village President, Eugene Williams.

Village officials believe they have the perfect location for a new casino. The village is located on the Illinois-Indiana border which Illinois residents cross in large numbers to play the casinos on the Indiana side.

The location of the village is Lynwood's selling point for a new casino. It is a prime location for a new casino license, and it would keep gamblers and their money in the state.

The Illinois Senate passed a gambling expansion bill last summer, but the House has been reworking it. South suburban representatives say they will not support any bill that does not locate one casino in their region.

State Rep. David Miller, D-Lynwood, said "It would be hard for me to support legislation that did not include a plan for the south suburbs by name. I think we make a strong case to have it."
