Des Plaines should reconsider what benefiting communities it annually distributes millions of dollars in Rivers Casino tax revenue to because some of the towns currently receiving the money are supporting efforts to expand gambling which, if approved, could cripple the amount of money Rivers regularly generates.

That’s the assessment of State Rep. Marty Moylan (D-55th) who for the last two years has led lobbying efforts to thwart gaming expansion because of the harmful financial effect it would have on Rivers and the city. Moylan, who took office in early January, said he plans to soon discuss with city officials the idea of changing the city’s agreement with Midwest Gaming and Entertainment, LLC and the Illinois Gaming Board that spells out what 10 benefiting communities share in the city’s host community tax revenue.
