Video Poker legalized by Illinois Senate

May. 30, 2009

The Illinois state Senate overwhelmingly voted Wednesday to make video poker legal, raise liquor taxes and allow over the Internet lottery wagering. These regulations were passed with the purpose of helping finance a $26 billion statewide construction package that is expected to be placed on the desk of Gov. Quinn's.

"What would be the first public works program in a decade passed the Senate on a series of bipartisan roll calls and would, according to Sen. Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale), end a "decade of decay" that festered on the state's roads, bridges and public buildings under impeached ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago) stated that "The gridlock we've been going through for six years has ended,". John Cullerton carried the package, which taps a combination of federal and state money.

The House still must sign off before it goes to Quinn, but Cullerton predicted House passage today.

To pay for it, senators voted 47-12 to legalize video poker in bars, restaurants, veterans halls and truck stops. The state will tax the machines at a 30 percent rate, raising $375 million annually.

The package includes substantial changes at the state lottery. A pilot program would be established in 2010 that will allow lottery wagering over the net. In addition, managing of the lottery will be turned over to a private firm. Both moves are expected to raise $150 million each year.

Good Luck
