Senate Passes Gambling Changes
A wide-ranging bill to bring order to Ohio’s gambling laws has cleared the state Senate.
The measure passed on a 29-3 vote on Wednesday. It makes dozens of changes to laws involving Ohio’s four new casinos, video lottery terminals, horse racing and other forms of gambling.
The vote comes a day after a Senate panel stripped a provision that would have expanded charity card rooms from one Ohio county to all 88 counties. Senators also added a one-year moratorium on new Internet “sweepstakes” cafes in the state.
Other items include longer operating hours for bingo parlors and a requirement that the state complete a study on gambling addiction problems.
The Ohio House planned Wednesday to reject the Senate changes to the bill, which would send it to a negotiating committee.
