With the possibility of losing visitors to the state's casinos, the purposed state wide smoking ban may not affect the gaming facilities. The ban would allow for smoking on gaming floors to continue. The exemption is being considered by the state since a loss in gaming revenues would result in a loss of state tax revenues.

It was reported in the nonpartisan Legislative Services Agency projected fiscal note that $180 million could be lost in state tax revenue if the smoking ban also included casinos.

The House Public Health Committee meet last week to discuss the matter. However, a vote was not done. It is however expected that the measure amendment could take place this week.

Indiana has a history of approving smoking bans in the House. However, it is always stopped by the Senate.

The exemption to the ban will be applied to casinos, horse race tracks, off track betting facilities, and possible cigar bars.
