Senate Bill 552 has passed in Indiana and is closer to be enforced. The bill will now move onto a committee before being enforced.

More than 70 representatives voted in favour of the bill, which will now go to a conference committee. Democrats and Republicans from both houses will make up this committee.

The bill would legalise sports wagering in Indiana and allow casinos in Gary, Indiana along Lake Michigan to move inland.

“It’s the ‘how’ that this process will have to figure out. I think everyone knows we want to help Terre Haute, we want to help Gary. Let’s figure out how to do that,” State Senator Jon Ford said.

A fee of US$100 million is introduced by the Public Policy Committee and might mean a new hurdle for the bill. Mayor Freeman-Wilson remains concerned about the fee and what it means for property rights. She added that it is important people feel secure with items they believe is their property.
