“In Springfield, we’re going to have to bring diverse voices together to quickly develop a gaming package that includes directing revenue where each region wants or needs it most,” Bennett said. “Our area schools need the investment that can come from a new facility, and that’s my priority.”

Bennett stressed the need to act quickly to his Senate colleagues since gaming efforts are ramping up in Indiana. 

“For a long time, the ink has dried on construction plans for Vermilion County,” Bennett said. “But Indiana’s competitive focus on gaming should be a signal to all of us to act quickly. There are great opportunities for economic growth in the area, if we can get to work with speed.”
