Pull-Tab Gambling Pulled
By staff
The Indianapolis Star has reported that “leaders” in the state senate have decided they want no expansion of gambling in Indiana and electronic pull-tab gambling has to go before it ever gets there.

House Bill 1188 “would have allowed 1,000 electronic pull-tab machines at each of the state's horse tracks, in Shelbyville and Anderson,” the Star reports. “ It also would have allowed 1,500 of the machines, which look nearly identical to slot machines, at betting parlors in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne.”

The death of the idea came through a political procedure, when Senate President Pro Tempore Robert Garton, a Republican, assigned the bill to the Senate's rules committee, where, it was rightly assumed by senate members, it would not be recommended for a hearing in the full Senate.

“Word of the bill's demise spread quickly throughout the state's horse racing industry,” the Star added.
