Proposed Terre Haute casino bill is failed to clear a senate committee on Wednesday. Committee members voted 5-5 on the creation of a new casino in the region. The chairman of the policy also opposed the bill.
Tim Lanane, who looks after Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in Anderson and Senator Vaneta Becker (R-50), who look after Tropicana Casino in Evansville along with three other members, turned down the senate bill 354.
And that means the chances of creating a casino in Terre Haute area is finished. Now the government and gaming bodies should also take a look at big picture of gaming throughout the state.
Another move taken by Rising Star Casino is failed because of No approval of the casino-project. Many years ago Rising Star Casino parent company Full House resorts also lost its battle to develop a casino near Indianapolis.
Competitors of Terre Haute casino were arguing that additional casino would have hurt casinos and its community throughout the state.
Some casinos are already operating near Terre Haute like one in Evansville and French Lick and the two “racinos” in Anderson and Shelbyville. Two “racinos” and French Lick has received monetary support from previous bills but Evansville has not received any kind of support from previous bill.
Stating his views on current scenarios the general manager of Tropicana Casino John Chaszar said that “it would have definitely affected our business in the region” and any loss of ours casino-revenue will hit local economy as well.
Now the rest of the casino operators are very happy. The decision is a smart one says chaszer in his statement.
