A former city manager for the St. Louis suburb of Brentwood has been banned from entering any casino in Missouri.
For the first time since it was implemented in 1996, gamblers in Missouri now have a way to remove themselves from the state's voluntary casino exclusion list.
The Missouri Gaming Commission today made forms available to start the removal from the "disassociated persons" list. Any gambler who's been on the list for five years is eligible.
Gov. Pat Quinn says he doesn't support slot machines at Illinois racetracks.
Quinn on Monday discussed his objections to a gambling bill passed by lawmakers but not yet sent to him.
Quinn laid out a framework for gambling expansion that includes five new casinos in Chicago, southern Cook County, Lake County, Rockford and Danville.
He says the Illinois Gaming Board should choose the location in Lake County and not the Park City location passed by lawmakers.
Quinn also says he opposes slot machines at Chicago's O'Hare or Midway airports.
