Amends the Riverboat Gambling Act. Provides that, in determining whether to grant an owners license to an applicant, the Illinois Gaming Board shall consider the extent to which the ownership of the applicant includes veterans of service in the armed forces of the United States, and the good faith affirmative action plan of each applicant to recruit, train, and upgrade veterans of service in the armed forces of the United States in all employment classifications. Requires the Board, by rule, to establish goals for the award of contracts by each owners licensee to businesses owned by veterans of service in the armed forces of the United States, expressed as percentages of an owners licensee's total dollar amount of contracts awarded during each calendar year. Provides criteria for the Board to consider when setting the goals. Requires each owners licensee to file with the Board an annual report of its utilization of veteran-owned businesses during the preceding calendar year, which shall include a self-evaluation of the efforts of the owners licensee to meet the goals.
