Leader: Ohio Senate Wants To Outlaw Internet Cafes
The leader of the Ohio Senate says the Republican-controlled chamber is ready to move forward with a bill essentially outlawing Internet cafes.
At a news conference Wednesday, Senate President Keith Faber said a majority of his caucus now agrees the sweepstakes parlors are illegal and should be banned. The announcement follows pleas by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine for legislative action.
DeWine, a fellow Republican, led a raid on six of the facilities in the Cleveland area last week after an appellate court ruled the cafes constituted illegal gambling.
The Ohio House approved a bill late last year intended to regulate the cafes. It failed to gain traction in the Senate, but the House passed a new proposal in March that is pending in a Senate committee.
