Statement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel Concerning the Illinois State Senate's Bipartisan Support for Comprehensive Gaming Legislation

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

I applaud the Illinois Senate for taking action on the gaming bill by passing the bipartisan bill today.  Specifically I want to thank Senator Terry Link and Senate President John Cullerton for working to strengthen the bill.  This important legislation will provide needed resources to Chicago Public Schools to improve the lives of thousands of Chicago students. I urge the House to take swift action on the gaming bill.
