2 votes against video gambling in Chicago-area

October 6, 2009 (CHICAGO) The vote was unanimous by Naperville city council on Tuesday night which passed the ban without discussion.

The ordinance says video gambling is not consistent with the community's family values, that there would be potential for corruption, and that there would be other social costs as well.

And earlier on Tuesday the Cook County Board voted to ban video gambling in unincorporated areas of the county. That, though, won't have much effect since there are only 53 businesses in those areas that would have qualified for the games.
