INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - We have an update on the next hearing that could pave the way for a casino in Terre Haute.

The Indiana House Ways and Means Committee will hold a hearing on Senate Bill 552 on Tuesday morning.

That is the bill that would legalize sports wagering and move a casino from Gary to Terre Haute.

The current version of the bill would force current owners, Spectacle Entertainment, to give up the license if the casino is relocated here.

Spectacle also wants to move a casino off Lake Michigan inland.

The bill's current version tacks on a fee of $100 million to make that happen.
