Oppose Gambling Expansion SB 7

SB 7 is a huge expansion of gambling which includes: new casinos in the City of Chicago, Rockford, Danville, Lake County, South Suburbs, Williamson County, and video slot machines at 4 at racetracks.  It even expands gambling to County Fairs!

SB 7 not only lowers the tax rate on csino gambling, but it exempts "comps" from being taxed-hotel rooms, food, coupons, and other services provided on a complimentary basis to customers. Up to 30 percent could be tax exempt. This was done in Pennsylvania and resulted in LOSS of revenue to the State.

This bill receltyly passed the Illinois Senate by a vote of 33-24 with one voting present.

Take ACTION:  Please tell your state Representative to vote NO to SB 7 -- NO MORE GAMBLING in Illinois!  

Tell him /her that g
ambling is an unstable source of revenue that won't and can't solve Illinois' fiscal problems, but more importantly, it's hurting many families because of its addictive nature.
