One casino issue on the ropes... Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner announced that LetOhioVote.org fell 27,065 signatures shy of the 241,366 needed to put Governor Strickland's plan to install slot machines at horse tracks across Ohio. The group now has 10 days to get those signatures.
...One headed for votes The Ohio House voted 71-26 on Wednesday to put an issue on the ballot that would change the location of the proposed Columbus casino. This was necessary because the specific locations of the four casinos were included in the original constitutional amendment that approved the casinos. If the measure fails, Penn National Gaming says that they will build on the original site.
