Governor drops gambling expansion

July 31, 2008

SPRINGFIELD, IL - Gov. Rod Blagojevich has abandoned his proposal to license more casinos in Illinois as the way to pay for $34 billion in construction spending. Instead, he will direct his efforts towards leasing out the lottery for billions upfront and using upside sales tax revenues from higher priced gasoline to pay for the construction plan.

His position change on gambling follows last week's special series in the Daily Herald about the state's casino industry. The newspaper exposed the state's poor support of gambling addicts and how slot machine odds are tighter to compensate for fewer players.
