Illinois Senate President John Cullerton says he'll be meeting with Gov. Pat Quinn Thursday morning to discuss the Senate's decision to delay voting on gambling expansion.

On Wednesday, a Senate committee discussed a measure based on Quinn's requirements for more gambling. The governor wants five new casinos in Illinois, including one in Chicago.

However, Quinn is against slot machines at race tracks and Chicago's airports. Lawmakers say they want the governor to go along with legislation that includes slots at race tracks.
