Sen. Cullerton sent SB744 to the governor. Two stories up:

http://ilhbpa.com/bulletin/
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20130108/news/701089628/

This is the slots at tracks/new casinos bill that passed in May 2011, but did not have a veto-proof margin. Sen. Cullerton pulled it at that point. Tuesday he un-pulled it.

The governor has 60 days once he receives the bill. The new legislature cannot do anything about a veto.

Let me see if I understand what is happening.  The ADW law extention failed to get renewed because an amendment was attached to it that would take away the 3% money the tracks got and give it to Chicago schools.  No one knows when this will be straightened out.  Not to worry as some ADW companies are still taking bets like nothing happened.

The old, original, huge gambling bill now has been sent to the Governor after being in the deep freeze for a year.  This was done to clear out the storage of old bills passed, but not signed, according to Culleton.  Not to worry, this will be vetoed by Quinn.

What exactly is going on?  Not to worry, our friendly tracks are working together real hard on this situation.  Also, not to worry, the ITHA is on top of it as they faithfully serve horse racing in Illinois.

The 3 percent money was to hold us over until the 10th casino money started. We have the 3 percent, we are still waiting for the 10th casino money. That's what they tried to take away, the money we were promised back in 1999.

Thanks for the correction, Janine, I just read that in the article from Marcus.  I was close to getting it right.  Very confusing!

Maybe with a track record of TWO big gambling bills vetoed it will open the door for putting together a small, Chicago-casino only bill.

 Appears Casinos have made a new move.  Internet Gambling language quietly being slipped into the most recent proposed bills.

 Up Front Money - $20 Million each

 Desperate Legislature may go  for it ( although you can bet it is really not a  long run good  $ deal for the state )

 Stay Tuned

The new bill proposed by Link has everything and more in it.  They want to open up Internet betting to everyone, not just for horses, but for poker and other forms of gaming.  The tracks/casinos would establish their own websites for this.  The big problem here is keeping those under 21 from betting in it, plus controlling the process on the Internet.

I assume the casinos proposed for tracks and cities are also a part of this bill making it huge, bigger than any bill presented before.  Supposedly, Quinn has not spoken out against this bill, only being worried about making it work legally.

Link is hurrying this one through because Harry Reid, on the national scene, is trying to set up Nevada as the only state for Internet gambling.

Janine has an article up from the Daily Herald, explaining all this better than I have.  I think this all everything bill will go done in flames just like the other ones have, except the state really needs the money now.

Another article from March 6th and it says:

"The plan would allow gambling in restricted areas of OíHare and Midway airports in Chicago and would allow the stateís ailing horse tracks to offer slot machines. Even the Quad City Downs in East Moline, which hasnít offered live racing since 1995, could have slots if the owners agree to run a limited number of live races on the old track."

They put the online gaming in the bill to kill it.  Quinn will not go for it.

Quinn signed the bill allowing online lottery sales. Poker, blackjack and craps could be viewed as an extension of that.
