TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Senate Bill 552 is still waiting for its second hearing from the house committee.
This is something that Vigo County as a whole has been fighting for.
News 10 spoke with State Representative Alan Morrison.
“We’ve been working very hard talking to our colleagues and letting them know the positives of having a casino move to Terre Haute,” said Morrison. He believes this bill will go all the way to the wire.
Wednesday, News 10 was at the hearing. There were 100 people from Vigo County who came out to support the bill. This was an act that didn’t go unrecognized. It was something even Governor Eric Holcomb noticed.
He told News 10 it was refreshing to see people join together in that fashion. Holcomb put emphasis on how the state depends on the money casinos generate.
“I think it’s completely appropriate to be having this conversation at this moment,” he said.
We will continue to keep you updated on the progression of this bill.
