Buried way down in a press release today:
In addition to the $140 million in new funding the Governor proposed in his Fiscal Year 2006 Budget, the Governor is proposing an additional $300 million in new funding for education, by authorizing an increase of positions at Illinoisâ€™ existing riverboat casinos.
Waiting on a callback, but the AP says this:
His plan would allow a total of between 23,000 and 24,000 gambling positions at the casinos â€¦ up from the current 11,000.
The dam has been breached.
