CULLERTON PULLS ONLINE GAMBLING BILL OFF THE ILLINOIS AGENDA
02nd June, 2012 at 03:38:29
Not enough support at present
Hopes that the Illinois legislature might be sufficiently progressive to pass the online gambling legalisation bill introduced recently by Senator John Cullerton (see previous reports) were dashed this week when it transpired that the Senator had removed the online gambling provisions from the agenda, citing a lack of current support and the likelihood of a veto clash with state governor Pat Quinn.
It is not known when...or if...the measure will be re-introduced.
