The State General Assembly’s Gaming Study Committee reconvenes tomorrow in Indianapolis for its second meeting.
The agenda may be downloaded here. Â Riverboat Casinos seems to be the topic for tomorrow and the discussion includes the movement of existing riverboat casinos in Gary to new locations. Â This has been mentioned several times locally. Â The owner of one of the existing licenses in Gary has expressed interest in moving it to this area. Â In particular, the first area mentioned was north, up in Steuben County near the Toll Road and I-69 interchange. Â There’s been further talk of shifting that a bit south to Fort Wayne.
I checked with the City and no one will be speaking on behalf of the City at tomorrow’s hearing. Â There is one more hearing scheduled in October, on the 19th. Â I would expect City officials to speak at that meeting.
I will be travelling to Indianapolis in the morning to bring a full report.
