Dems Discuss New House Gambling Expansion Bill

House Democrats are scheduled to talk about gambling expansion at a news conference later Monday morning.

Many lawmakers are demanding a plan to pay for roads and bridges before they'll support a long-term bailout of the Chicago area's mass transit system.

Watson says he and House Republican Leader Tom Cross met with Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan yesterday.

Watson says he doesn't know the final details about what Democrats are going to propose Monday.
