The Ohio Casino Control Commission (OCCC) has approved a decrease in license renewal fees for casino employees. Currently an employee pays $546 in renewal fees: $250 for the application, $250 for the license and $46 for a background check. The OCCC dropped the fee to $196: $100 for the application, $50 for the license and $46 for a background check. This applies to renewals only, not first time applicants. The Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review and the Common Sense Initiative must now review.
