Voters Oppose Gaming Expansion

PRESS RELEASE

June 15, 2011

Voters in Chicago and throughout Illinois strongly oppose the gambling expansion bill recently passed by the Illinois legislature, according to a new survey commissioned by the Chicago Crime Commission. The survey also reveals that Illinoisans would veto the gambling legislation and ask for greater review of future proposals.

"Governor Quinn has said repeatedly that he wants to hear from anyone with an opinion on the gambling expansion issue and today voters from throughout Illinois responded to his request," according to J.R. Davis, Chairman and President of the Chicago Crime Commission. "If the average voter could sit down with the Governor, they would tell him this legislation is bad for Illinois and that they had little input into the decision making process," he added.

"When asked, Illinois voters also said they feel the gambling expansion will have a negative impact on the quality of life in the State and, that it will add to human misery, without offsetting financial benefits," Davis said. "Survey results also indicate voters are deeply troubled that the legislation does not provide for enough investigators to deal with the issues created by a massive expansion of gaming in the State," he continued.

"This survey provides a clear and complete reaction to this legislation from the voters of Illinois. We implore Governor Quinn to do the right thing and veto this legislation if it comes to his desk," Davis concluded.
