Gambling to remain an issue in General Assembly

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.
