Indianapolis (WTHI) - The big gaming bill at the Indiana statehouse took another major step forward.
That's as the bill passed the house ways and means committee Tuesday morning.
We've told you before it would legalize sports wagering in the stateand is also the bill that would allow a casino to relocate from Gary to Terre Haute.
News 10's Jon Swaner has been following this story for you from Indianapolis.
This bill has changed again as it continues on the legislative process.
Let's focus on the changes that impact Terre Haute. If Spectacle Entertainment chooses to move one of its Gary licenses inland, it must surrender that license.
The state gaming commission will then hold a competitive bid process for that license.
To give the local community a voice in who operates the casino, the bill forms a five person Vigo county advisory board: the mayor, a county commissioner, the president of the capital improvement board, and appointees by the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce and the governor's office.
