Slots Referendum Removed From Ballot

A year after spending $1.5 million to challenge a state budget provision allowing video slot machines at horse racing tracks, LetOhioVote.org has asked Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to remove its initiative from the November ballot. Committee members wrote “since the time this petition effort was initiated, there have been a number of important changes in the legal landscape with respect to gaming in Ohio.” Those changes include the passage of the casino amendment and the Governor’s plan to ask the courts to determine if placing video slot machines at racetracks can be done under existing state lottery laws.
