As the casino legislation moves its way through Springfield, a new chief sponsor was put on the bill for the Illinois House.
While Lou Lang (D-Ill) had been the point-person, that's changed with just 10 days left in the legislative session.
It's a major change in strategy, given Lang's lengthy history and his spot at the negotiating table.
It's now Robert Rita, a Blue Island Democrat.
Lang revealed on Tuesday he had a perceived conflict tied to one of his clients.
Rumors were already swirling that City Hall's fingerprints were on the move. Stay tuned.
