INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A key state legislator doesn't expect the General Assembly will be taking any action on changing Indiana's casino laws during its upcoming session.

Legislators had lengthy debates in this year's session over bills aimed at boosting the state's casinos as they face greater competition from neighboring states, but turned down most of those proposals.

New House Public Policy Committee chairman Tom Dermody of LaPorte says he's working to learn about the casino issues and expects debates on any major changes to wait until the 2015 session.

The Herald Bulletin reports that includes considering again whether to allow live table games such as blackjack and roulette at the two horse track casinos near Indianapolis. Only electronic versions of those games are now allowed there.
