Report: Quinn concerned casinos would hurt education

Gov. Pat Quinn's latest complaint about a casino expansion gambling bill is regarding its impact on money for schools.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Governor Quinn says tax cuts for casinos in the bill would take away money from education.

The newspaper found partial support for the governor from a bipartisan legislative panel. The panel found that in the first few years, tax revenues for school will be low. But after four years, more tax money would go towards schools.

Because of Quinn's possible veto, lawmakers have not yet sent Quinn the bill.
