Cannery Casino Resorts was expected to disclose plans today for a $250 million casino with a 200-room hotel in Country Club Hills, Ill., at a news conference in the city. A gambling expansion bill must first be passed by state lawmakers and signed by the governor before any additional casinos could be built in the state. "We know there's a lot of decisions yet to be made, but we feel confident that our presentation to the Illinois Gaming Board would be well-received," said Bill Paulos, whose company is the majority owner of Cannery Casino Resorts.
