Gov. J.B. Pritzker Fills Two Vacant Seats On Illinois Gaming Board

State Governor J.B Pritzker has filled two vacant seats on the Illinois Gaming Board after he signed the massive gambling expansion bill over a month ago.

The two seats filled include the position of Illinois Gaming Board’s new chairman and another vacant seat to constitute the five-member board. The board is responsible for awarding licenses for new casinos, and also monitoring the entire process leading to the launching of the regulated sports betting market in the state.

Springfield attorney Charles Schmadeke was announced the chairman of the Gaming board while Boeing senior counsel Anthony Garcia joins the board as members. The appointments made by Gov. Pritzker need to be approved by the Senate.

According to the current laws, at least one member of the Gaming Board must have law enforcement and criminal investigation experience, one must be a licensed attorney in Illinois and one must be a certified public accountant. The three sitting members, all from Cook County, cover those requirements.

The five-member board will meet for the first time on Thursday since the massive gambling expansion bill was signed last month.

The gambling expansion bill allows for six casinos at different locations in the state including the Chicago casino and a casino at Rockford.

The Gaming Control Board has already chosen Union Gaming to conduct a feasibility study about the Chicago casino.

On the other hand, the city of Rockford has already called for Requests For proposals (RFPs).
