Terre Haute Casino Bill Defeated in Committee


Senate Bill 354, also know as the Casino bill for Terre Haute, was defeated Wednesday afternoon in a 5/5 vote at the Statehouse.

The main concerned voiced by senators today is the detriment that the Terre Haute area casino would have on nearby casinos.

State Sen. Jon Ford released a statement Wednesday saying, “I’m disappointed that Senate Bill 354 didn’t make it out of committee today because I believe this legislation would have a positive impact on the Terre Haute community. I’m glad we started this conversation and I will continue to advocate for way to boost our local economy and bring more jobs to Terre Haute.”
