It has been reported that a bill which would see expanded gaming implemented at Illinois racetracks has passed through a house executive committee and is on its way to the house floor.

An article yesterday on illinois.statehousenewsonline.com explains that House Bill 3107, sponsored by State Rep. Lou Lang, would create up to 1,500 jobs and rake in up to $400 million for the state.

“We should not have limits on our gaming operations,” Lang was quoted as saying. “We should let them grow like every other business grows, but that has not been the way or the direction the General Assembly has gone.”
