Indiana On-Land Casinos To Be Allowed Without Pence’s Signature

Indiana's riverboat casinos will be allowed to build new on-land facilities under a bill that Governor Pence will allow to become law without his signature. Pence says the bill is consistent with his position of helping Indiana's casinos remain competitive while not allowing an expansion of gambling. Earlier versions of the legislation would've allowed the horse track casinos in Anderson and Shelbyville to add live dealers for table games, but that provision was dropped after Pence objected. On Friday, Pence vetoed a bill that would have allowed electronic wagering on horse races. Pence said in a statement that he has long opposed online gambling and that particular bill breaks his stance against an expansion of gambling in the state.
