STATEHOUSE -

Senate Bill 140 will limit the amount that casinos and racinos can deduct from the taxes that are due for our schools and local governments. We are looking at amendments to improve the bill and to allow for regulations that prevent Ohio taxpayers from having to pick up the tab for advertising run amuck.
 
We’re proud of what we’ve done to improve Ohio’s economy over the last few years. Senate Bill 140 will go a long way to make sure that our schools and local governments receive the benefits from gaming that they were promised.
