Firm Wants To Build South Suburban Casino

A North Las Vegas, Nev.-based company wants to build a $250 million casino in the Chicago suburb of Country Club Hills.   The SouthtownStar reports (http://bit.ly/ZhJ6MT) the casino operator is making the announcement despite Gov. Pat Quinn’s veto of a gambling expansion bill. It’s unclear whether the Illinois Legislature will be able to pass a bill that Quinn could support.
Cannery Casino Resorts issued a statement Monday saying it wants to build near the Interstate 80 and I-57 interchange. The company says a new casino would create 1,000 full-time jobs.  
Partners in the project would be Chicago funeral home owners Lafayette and Marguerite Gatling, who own the site.
