Efforts for Danville Casino Revived in Springfield

Vermilion County Board Chairman Larry Baughn testified before the Illinois House Executive Committee this (Thursday) morning during a discussion on casino expansion.  Baughn noted supporters of a proposed Danville casino have been working on it for years….

Baughn (shown here) noted projections have shown that a casino in Danville would create about 800 permanent jobs—and that is just at the casino….

And Baughn says a Danville casino would not adversely affect other Illinois casinos….

Indiana lawmakers have already approved a gaming expansion bill which includes plans for a Terre Haute casino.  But the governor has not yet signed the bill.
