The Illinois horse racing industry could find itself in a bind if lawmakers don't renew a law allowing online betting that expires in January.
Race dates at Illinois racetracks, including Fairmont Park, would be severely cut if lawmakers don't take action to renew the betting law and give Illinois' racing board access to money online wagering generates.
The issue could come up when the General Assembly convenes Tuesday.
But even if lawmakers get it done, there's no guarantee Governor Quinn will sign it. Quinn has said he won't consider other legislation until lawmakers fix the state's pension crisis.
