Casino Petition Language Must Be Changed

Casino Petition Language Must Be Changed

In order to place a proposed constitutional amendment on November’s ballot, gaming proponents must have their petition language approved by Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray.  Last week Cordray rejected the proposed wording of the ballot initiative that would allow casinos in Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus and Cincinnati.  The Attorney General objected to the language because the summary of the petition was too vague, and the language could exempt gaming winnings from taxation.  Proponents of the ballot initiative are undaunted and have indicated that they will reword the petition and resubmit it to Cordray.
