Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (at podium), other elected and community leaders, and representatives of Walker's Bluff gathered Tuesday at the winery in Carterville as part of the celebration of Pritzker's Rebuild Illinois capital plan. Illinois lawmakers passed a gaming expansion bill in early June which authorizes six new casino licenses in Illinois, including one for Walker's Bluff. The winery is planning a $300 million, privately-funded resort expansion and construction of an on-site casino.
