Gambling will remain an issue for debate in the Indiana General Assembly during its second half of the session.
The Senate passed a bill that originally would have allowed riverboat casinos on Lake Michigan and the Ohio River to move inland. That provision was removed from the bill before it passed, but the bill still would remove requirements that the riverboats have navigational systems and maritime crews.
The House Public Policy Committee plans to consider the Senate bill on Wednesday, and it's possible the land-based casino provision could be put back in the bill.
The issue is likely to end up in a conference committee, where the House and Senate will seek compromises.
