[GOV]GOVERNOR PENCE SIGNS GAMING LEGISLATION

Entry Description

Indianpolis, IN – Governor Mike Pence today signed Senate Enrolled Act 528, which allows existing casinos and racinos and related businesses to improve their market competitiveness, without expanding gaming in Indiana. 

"Recognizing the competitive environment in the gaming industry and its importance to local communities, I signed this legislation to give gaming businesses within our state the tools to compete with surrounding states,” said Pence. “I appreciate the opportunity to work with the legislature on this bill and am pleased that it did not include an expansion of gaming.”

The legislation makes adjustments in the gaming tax structure and codifies the limited use of mobile gaming devices approved by the Horse Racing Commission last year to help the state’s existing industry be more competitive.

SEA 528 was authored by Senators Phil Boots (R), Luke Kenley (R), Ron Alting (R) and coauthored by Senators Tim Lanane (D), Jim Arnold (D), and Jean Leising (R). It was sponsored by Representative Bill Davis (R) and co-sponsored by Representatives Terri Austin (D), Tim Brown (R), and Sean Eberhart (R).
