Substitute H.B. 386 includes a stopgap provision for a moratorium on all new internet cafes through June 30, 2013. After that bill is resolved, lawmakers are expected to turn their full attention to regulating those businesses. A bill that would regulate these cafes has been idled in a House committee for over a year.
Meanwhile, Canton City Council has issued a six-month moratorium on all new Internet cafes inside city limits.
