PRESS STATEMENT OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE SOUTH SUBURBAN MAYORS AND MANAGERS ASSOCIATION-- RE: ILLINOIS GAMING EXPANSION
May 28, 2019
Press Statement of the President of the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association (SSMMA)
Re: Illinois Gaming Expansion
“We strongly support efforts by State Representative Bob Rita and other lawmakers in Springfield for gaming expansion and sports betting in Illinois before the legislative session ends this week.
The Southland needs the hope and opportunity that can come from gaming expansion. A new casino in the south suburbs and legalized sports betting will create many jobs and new revenue streams to allow our communities to reinvest in our local infrastructure, our schools and our pension systems. It will also ensure we recapture the entertainment dollars that now leave our state to go to the nearby Indiana casinos.
We encourage Representative Rita, the Legislature and Gov. Pritzker to put together a gaming expansion and sports betting package that can help revitalize our area, and our state. Let's get this done this week."
