[s43] Sen. Nugent Praises the Continuation of Current Funding for Gaming Communities

Entry Description
State Sen. Johnny Nugent (R-Lawrenceburg) made the following statement today:

STATEHOUSE (May 10, 2013) – “A previous version of Senate Enrolled Act 528 would have taken a significant amount of revenue from the counties and cities that host riverboats or casinos. This would have caused Rising Sun’s city and Ohio County governments, as well as Dearborn County to lose over half of the admission tax funds they received in the previous year. I’m pleased the passed version of Senate Enrolled Act 528 does not decrease this funding.

“Maintaining current revenue levels for local governments is a victory that couldn’t have been successful without the help of many local officials, state senators and state representatives. This money can still be used to help fund local support services such as police and fire protection, as well as to share with surrounding cities, towns and counties.

“I expect this issue will come up again in the future, and I will continue to fight for this level of funding for the local gaming communities.”
