The deadline for Illinois Governor Pat Quinn to sign into law was Tuesday night. However, the governor decided to veto the bill instead.

The proposed bill would have allowed for five new casinos to be built. Currently there are 10 casinos in the state. Chicago would have been one of the cities to be allowed to build a casino. It would have been Chicago's first.

In addition, Horse race tracks would also be able to operate electronic gaming machines.

However, the bill was rejected by Gov Quinn due to ethical reasons.

The proposed gaming bill would have also allowed for political campaigns to receive contributions from the casino companies. This is not allowed in other states.
