[font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Feb-19-06 AT 03:16AM (EST)[/font][p]Gov. Mitch Daniels has committed $2.5 million to help the city of Portage with bringing a new Bass Pro Shops store. Cabela's is going to compete by building a superstore in Hammond.
The state is hoping to generate sales tax revenue by bringing in shoppers from Illinois and Wisconsin.
I guess the state will come out ahead, after the first $42 million is sales.
I would assume the Clarksville location also brings in a lot of tax revenue from Louisville.
