Gaming bill provisions removed in House committee

Updated: April 9, 2013 10:13PM



INDIANAPOLIS - Efforts to boost Indiana’s gaming industry continues to limp along, after the Public Policy committee removed a number of provisions from the bill to attract customers.

The bill passed out of Ways and Means Tuesday.

Originally passed to allow additional efforts, such as table games at racinos and riverboats to allow gambling on the facility’s footprint, the bill now only provides for tax policy changes, such as free-play promotions and changing riverboat taxes from admissions to 3.5 percent of supplemental wagers.

The bill now heads to the House floor.
