INDIANAPOLIS – A bill to let voters decide whether the state should license a
casino in Fort Wayne died today in the Indiana House of Representatives. It
failed to reach a vote prior to the deadline when bills must be approved by
either house General Assembly.
If passed the bill would have required a special election this year for voters
to approve a Fort Wayne casino.
State Senator Tom Wyss from Allen County says the bill may not be dead and may
still be considered. "Issues that you think are dead or they're gone, they
magically re-appear sometimes during conference committees. So, I think for the
people that oppose gaming, I think they have to keep their eyes out on this."
Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry previously ordered a study on the social and economic
impacts of gaming, and he is waiting for those results before supporting or
opposing a casino in Fort Wayne.
