In addition to sports betting becoming legal statewide, including at sports stadiums, arenas and ball clubs such as Wrigley Field, slot machines will be added to Chicago's O'Hare Airport, the nation's second largest.  Secondary airport Midway will also be able to install slot machines.

Passage of the budget, construction plan, and even recreational marijuana came with bipartisan support.

“Frankly, we all worked together on this. I mean, we did talk. My door was open to everyone standing behind me and everyone who’s not standing behind me,” Pritzker said Sunday night at the state capitol after lawmakers wrapped up session. “I had conversations with people from the moment I took office, even before that, to this moment; across the aisle, in my own party, and the truth is that we changed legislation. We made sure that we were taking into account the views of people all across the spectrum.”

Additionally there will be a casino constructed in Chicago.

Governor B Pritzker says he is ready to sign off on the measure, the final step in making it law.

It was just a few days ago that the bill looked as if it were left for dead.  That's when lawmakers opted for an extension to the legislative period into the weekend.
