Quinn wants to introduce a new scratch-off game with proceeds from sales of the one-dollar tickets going to veterans groups, including those that help vets file disability claims.

Quinn says he thinks people will go out of their way to buy a lottery ticket if they know it will help Illinois veterans.

A bill proposing the new lottery is expected to be introduced in the House this week.
