Illinois Lawmakers Eye Sports Betting
(Chicago, IL) — Illinois lawmakers are setting the table to legalize sports gambling. A joint statehouse committee will meet today in Springfield to look at everything from daily fantasy sports to betting kiosks in bars and restaurants. Supports say Illinois can use the millions-of dollars that legal gambling would generate to pay down old bills or build new roads. There is some talk at the statehouse of voting on a gambling plan as early as next month.
