Full House Resorts announces intent to compete for Terre Haute casino
Full House Resorts announced its intent to reintroduce its proposal to allow for the relocation of unused gambling games from its Rising Star Casino Resort to a supplemental location in Terre Haute. During the 2017 Indiana legislative session, Full House's proposal, which permitted it to relocate unused gambling games to Terre Haute, failed to advance after receiving a tie vote in the Senate Public Policy Committee. The central concern raised was that the 2017 bill unfairly favored a single casino operator. In response to that concern, Full House returned to the Indiana legislature in 2018 with a bill that would have allowed other casino owners to compete for a Terre Haute casino without eliminating the jobs or vacating the investments made in their original home communities.
