Democratic Sen. Terry Link says he's working with legislative leaders, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner to draft a proposal Rauner would be willing to sign.
Rauner has indicated he's more open to expanding gambling than his predecessor, Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, who twice vetoed gambling bills.
Link says: "We've got to get things in there that Gov. Rauner will be pleased with." He declined to say what those might be.
A likely sticking point is how much revenue from a Chicago casino the city would keep, and how much would go to the state.
