State Senate panel to vote on casino bill

An Indiana Senate committee plans to vote on a bill that would allow casinos on Lake Michigan and the Ohio River to move
inland.

The Senate Appropriations Committee took testimony on the bill last week and plans to vote on it Tuesday,
perhaps in the evening.

Proponents of the bill say that allowing the casinos to move inland might draw more customers
and help stave off competition from gambling expansions or possible expansions in neighboring states.

But some
casinos oppose the bill, fearing they could lose business to other Indiana casinos that relocate inland and attract more customers.
