Legislators to vote on state budget dealApril 24, 2019
By TOM DAVIES
INDIANAPOLIS — This year’s Indiana legislative session could end Wednesday with votes expected on a new state budget plan and a proposal legalizing sports betting and allowing new casinos in Terre Haute and Gary.
Republican legislative leaders on Tuesday released a state spending plan that increases base school funding by 2.5% percent each of the next two years.
They touted that proposal as making strides toward improving the state’s lagging teacher pay. But the state’s largest teachers union expressed frustration over the level of school funding and lack of action on teacher pay.
Negotiators were still working Tuesday on a final agreement on the gambling bill. The latest version would allow the Indiana Gaming Commission issue regulations and start approving casinos for sports wagering beginning July 1.
