Governor Quinn says he'll back a gambling bill, but only if it takes steps to keep mobsters out of the state. Lawmakers laugh at the suggestion that the mob might take over in Illinois. State Rep Lou Lang explains why.

The senate acted quickly on a new gaming bill after hearing Quinn would support it. The new bill would ban political contributions by anyone who has a gambling license. It passed out of committee just hours after Quinn's budget address, and could get a vote on the senate floor as early as today.
