INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - An Indiana bill that would legalize sports wagering will now be heard by the House Public Policy Committee.

It will also consider a second bill that would put a casino in Terre Haute.

That's the next stop for Senate Bills 66 and 552.

Both bills passed the Indiana Senate last month.

The House Public Policy Committee chairman has not set a hearing date for these bills.

A majority of the committee members voted for a bill in 2015 that allowed for riverboat casinos to be moved inland.
