Governor Pat Quinn is hearing both praise and criticism for his decision to veto a large gambling package.
Lawmakers who pushed the gaming plan said he has been unwilling to work with them. But Quinn is also getting a few pats on the back.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel is one of the detractors. He planned to keep pushing to have a casino built in the city.
The proposal Quinn dismissed would also have allowed casinos to be built in Danville, Park City, Rockford, and at an undetermined spot in Chicago's south suburbs.
