Governor Quinn says he'll take the weekend to finalize his decision on whether to expand gambling across the state.

He says ethics, integrity, and oversight are a few of his biggest concerns.

Quinn has said he wouldn't support a proposal that included too much gaming or came with too little oversight.  He originally vowed to veto a gaming bill because it included slot machines at race tracks.  Quinn doesn't like the idea of slots at the tracks but the newest proposal didn't completely eliminate them.  He says he'll likely make a decision by Tuesday.
