INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - A new report suggests tourism has had a growing impact on Indiana's economy.

That's according to the Indiana Office of Tourism Development.

It says travel, tourism, and hospitality generated nearly $3 billion in taxes last year.

Indiana's convention business took an estimated $60 million hit after a "Religious Objections Law" was signed by former Governor, Vice President Mike Pence.
