ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- With a casino in the works for the city of Beloit, many people in Rockford are frustrated the forest city hasn't been able to get one.

The Winnebago County Government Affairs and Strategic Planning Committee discussed their support to bring a casino to Rockford.

Although no plans are in place right now, the committee wants to call on Springfield to restart the discussion on putting a casino in town that could bring in money for the county.

Board chairman Frank Haney says this discussion could be brought to the board in the future.
