Quinn wants lawmakers to ban campaign contributions from the gaming industry.  He says without the ban, gaming could spin out of control in Illinois.  Illinois lawmakers have received half-a-million dollars from gaming interests in the past three years.  The bill under consideration would add five new casinos across the state plus slots at racetracks.  Proponents say more gaming will put thousands of people to work and generate more than 100-million dollars in new revenue for the state.
