Short description: 
GAMBLING-STATEWIDE REFERENDUM                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates  the  Gambling  Referendum  Act.   Requires  an  advisory      
   question to be submitted to the voters of the entire State at the 1998      
   general election as to whether  the  General  Assembly  should  expand      
   legalized  gambling in Illinois.  The Act is repealed January 1, 1999.      
   Amends the Election Code to provide that the question submitted to the      
   voters  is  not  subject  to  the  3  advisory  referenda  limitation.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          HB 640 does preempt home rule authority.                             
          FISCAL NOTE (Ill. Gaming Board)                                      
          There would be no costs associated with HB 640 for this Dept.        
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 640 creates a local organization and      
          structure mandate which does not require State reimbursement         
          under the State Mandates Act.
