Gaming. Provides that after June 30, 2007, a licensed owner must apply for and receive the gaming commission's approval before constructing a new riverboat that is certified under marine structural and life safety standards determined by the gaming commission. Allows the gaming commission to approve a phase of the construction project that will be completed outside Indiana only if the commission finds that it is technologically or economically unfeasible to perform the work in Indiana. Specifically excludes any construction begun before July 1, 2007 from the approval requirement. Changes the definition of "gambling game" for purposes of the riverboat law from a list of specified games to any game approved by the gaming commission as a wagering device.
