SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a new law on Friday which allows the City of Rockford to raise taxes on video gaming machines.
Senate Bill 1558, which was sponsored by Sen. Steve Stadelman (D) allows the City to raise the license fees on video gaming machines. The legislation takes effect immediately.
Currently, non-home rule cities in Illinois cannot charge more than $25 annually for a video gaming machine license. The new law raises that limit to $250, only in Rockford.
