INDIANAPOLIS (WTWO) – Terre Haute inched another step closer to bringing a casino to the area Monday as SB 552, also known as the “Gaming Matters Bill,” passed its third House reading in a 78-15 vote.

This bill, which could potentially bring a casino to Terre Haute and legalize sports betting across the state, now heads to the conference committee.

Prior to the vote, Rep. Alan Morrison said he would support the bill, but much of it needed to be fixed.

According to Morrison, the way the bil lis currently written, Terre Haute would not have a chance at a casino license.

Morrison also pushed for the mobile component of sports betting to be put back into the bill.
