Pull-tabs earn House go-ahead | The Journal Gazette

Pull-tabs earn House go-ahead The Journal Gazette:
"INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana House voted 62-36 Tuesday to allow bars and taverns around the state to offer paper pull-tabs and other low-stakes gambling games.
Rep. Matt Bell, R-Avilla, co-author of House Bill 1153, told his fellow representatives that bars and taverns are struggling and these games could add $1,000 to $2,000 a month in revenue to their bottom line.
“This bill answers the pleas of small-business men across the state,” he said.
The measure legalizes paper pull-tabs, punchboards and tipboards – small paper games of chance currently used for charitable gaming in fraternal clubs and other non-profit organizations."
