Quinn not willing to make a deal involving gambling expansion

Posted: Updated:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn says he won't sign a gambling expansion bill, that includes a casino for Rockford, in exchange for a promise that legislators will pass an ethics measure in the fall.

Quinn made the comment Monday, however, he still hasn't said for certain that he will veto the gambling expansion plan.

The gambling expansion in Illinois would create five new casinos and allow slot machines at horse racing tracks for the first time.
