Today:   Ed Feigenbaum, the creator and editor of the "Indiana Gaming Insight" and "Indiana Legislative Insight" newsletters, is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the latest Indiana gaming industry news including the local casinos -- and about the 2021 General Assembly session that just began this week in Indianapolis. We also have Jim Ventura, the CEO of Maya Energy LLC, which is building a solid waste and recyclables processing facility on Gary's west edge.  Plans call for a 156,000 square foot building to accept and process up to 1,600 tons of municipal waste and construction and demolition waste for reuse each year.  Land surveying and preparation just began on the site and Maya Energy anticipates its opening late this year.
