Legislation that would permit the state's 15 floating casinos to operate on land is headed to a House committee.

The Senate voted 22-14 Tuesday in favor of the bill.

If signed into law, the casinos will be able to set up shop within 1,200 feet of their designated berth site and increase the number of slot machines at each facility.
