Indiana legislators passed a bill that will expand gaming in the state. Competition from casinos in other states has prompted the new bill.
The bill was designed to help the casinos grow. All casinos would be pay lower taxes. Two horse tracks in Indianapolis would be allowed to operate table games. Also riverboat casinos would be allowed to be able to move inland.
Opponents to the bill state that the lower tax rate will take money away from helping the state. It could remove possible millions from the state's budget.
Approval was given 8 to 4 by the Senate Appropriations Committee.
