GOV, will electing Topinka bring a casino to Rosemont?

Daily Herald (Bob Susnjara) suggests Topinka's plan for a tenth casino license revives the possibility of a casino for Rosemont.
Rosemont Mayor Donald E. Stephens has frequently said his village and Chicago are the best places for a casino. The mayor’s spokesman, Gary Mack, reiterated that position Wednesday.

“We believe that Rosemont would be the most successful casino in the state,” Mack said, “and that it would generate huge sums of out-of-state revenue — perhaps more than one in Chicago.”

My understanding is that when there was a plan to bring a casino to Rosemont there was also a revenue sharing plan to buy off local municipalities so they wouldn't object.
