"Shall sports wagering activities and operations be permitted in the parish of _?"
Ohioans now wait to see if the Senate passes their sports betting bill.
While the House bill calls for the Ohio Lottery Commission to regulate sports betting in the state, the Senate bill pegs the Ohio Casino Control Commission to oversee the industry.
If the bill passes, there are still differences between Greenspan's House bill and a Senate bill that was introduced by Senator John Eklund previous year. This will likely result in a patchwork of legalized sports betting across the state.
The bill includes an emergency clause, which means if Gov. Mike DeWine signs it, it would take effect immediately instead of after the usual 90-day waiting period. This could prolong the process. The overall plan on what the state wants to do for sports betting should be the same on both sides. They are looking at a $775 million deficit, which isn't as bad as what other states are seeing. The 10% tax rate proposed in the bill would make OH a very competitive state for operators, much like what we have seen in Colorado, but OH only has four full-fledged brick-and-mortar casinos and seven racinos.
