A reworked bill on casino expansion, including Chicago, passed the state House Executive Committee Friday.

Illinois Senate Bill 744 passed just before 4 p.m. in an 8-4 bipartisan vote.

It now heads to the full state House and could be voted on as early as Monday, as the House plans to conduct business on Memorial Day.
