The Indiana House is putting a $50 million bounty on Terre Haute’s quest to get a casino moved from Gary, according to WIBC host Rob Kendall. Is that the case?
Co-host Abdul-Hakim Shabazz told Kendall that the House is proposing a transfer fee, which essentially is a fee that the state wants to charge the holder of the Gary, Indiana Casino license to move their casino from Gary to Terre Haute.
