NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A bill to extend the Harrah's Casino operating contract died Friday in the final hours of the spring legislative session.
Earlier this week, House lawmakers rejected the Senate's amendments to the bill and sent the measure to a conference committee made up of both House and Senate members.
A Harrah's spokesman said they are disappointed the bill could not proceed.
Harrah's current contract with Louisiana doesn't expire for six more years. But the casino wanted to renew now, and in exchange for that, it promised to invest $350 million into the casino and property around it.
