The Illinois state legislature passed a bill that could help entice developers to build a casino in the Chicago city limits, according to the Chicago Tribune.
According to the report, both the House and Senate passed a bill which would restructure the tax structure for a potential casino-- something that had been viewed as an obstacle to draw interest from potential developers.
If a casino is built in the city, it would likely come with a sportsbook so that gamblers could stay closer to home to bet on games.
The bill now heads to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s desk where he is expected to sign the bill into law.
The Chicago casino could also help fund the $45 billion Rebuild Illinois capital plan that Pritzker signed last year.
