This session, State Senator Lonnie Randolph authored a bill expanding economic development opportunities for Lake Michigan industries.  In an effort to draw more business and tourism, Senate Bill 173 would allow waterfront restaurants receiving local, state or federal funding to sell alcoholic beverages if they participate in lakefront development projects. This legislation would have a large impact on increasing competition for Northwest Indiana towns, such as Whiting, seeking to revitalize their waterfronts in order to attract in more business. This proposal was developed from previous legislation promoting riverside development.
