Is more gaming coming to Illinois, and will it be approved during the fall veto session in Springfield?Those are the questions being asked after State Senator Terry Link sponsored a bill to create four new casino and riverboat licenses.

They would be for Chicago, Lynwood, Danville and Park City.

As part of the proposed legislation, 70 percent of Chicago's casino proceeds would be transferred to the city for construction and maintenance throughout the city.
