The Ho-Chunk Nation wants to build an off-reservation casino in Beloit. Ho-Chunk president Jon Greendeer says the application is under federal review, a process that could take another couple of years to complete. Greendeer says there's a lot that goes into it:
Governor Pat Quinn refuses to be pinned down on what he'll do with legislation that expands gambling in Illinois -- creating five new casinos in cities like Chicago ... Rockford ... and Danville. Gov. Quinn will once again have the opportunity to approve or veto gambling legislation. But unlike past bills, this time it's take-it-or-leave-it -- the legislature won't have the chance to override a potential veto.
Longtime supporters of expanding gambling in Illinois say they'll soon have new legislation in the General Assembly. But the million-dollar question is whether Governor Pat Quinn might finally be willing to play along.
