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.  Requires a question to be submitted      
   to the voters of a municipality or the unincorporated area of a county      
   as to whether the municipality or county  should  authorize  riverboat      
   gambling  or  a new form of legalized gambling and an affirmative vote      
   by a majority of those voters  before  a  new  license  is  issued  to      
   conduct  riverboat  gambling  or  to  conduct  a new form of legalized      
   gambling in the municipality or county.  Amends the Riverboat Gambling
