Quinn says he's working with legislative leaders, lawmakers and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to work out a plan that everybody likes.  He says there must be strong oversight plus money that goes toward improving education in the state.  Quinn supports adding five casinos across the state but he is opposed to having slot machines at race tracks.
