INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - Around 100 people made the trip to Indianapolis on Wednesday to support a bill that would bring a casino to Terre Haute.

A committee currently assigned to that bill wants more time to consider it before putting it to a vote.

"What a great day for Terre Haute. It was so awesome to see, what was it...over 100 people sitting there and listening to the testimony and fighting for our community," Representative Tonya Pfaff said.

"It says a lot to the committee. It says a lot to the folks whether or not they're supporting it or on the fence about it. As a community, we're really backing this. It's a very very positive day," Representative Alan Morrison said.

The House Public Policy Committee could vote on Senate Bill 552 as early as next week.
