Ohio lawmakers want no smoking in casinos



Published: Wed, May 19, 2010 @ 3:08 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio lawmakers want the state’s four new casinos to be smoke-free, with no alcohol served after 2:30 a.m., and with slots winnings paid in chips, not coins.

Those are some areas of common ground in the sets of casino rules proposed by the Ohio House and Senate. House lawmakers introduced their bill Tuesday, a day after senators did. The two chambers planned to have separate hearings on their proposals today.

The House and Senate bills also agree that a new seven-member gaming commission should oversee the casinos, and that the establishments must bar patrons younger than 21.

One key difference involves minority hiring at the casinos. Unlike the Senate bill, the House version requires casino operators to set diversity goals.

SkyKing310B you are right on the money. Clueless politicians who rob us blind every which way. The private firms should tell them get lost. They lay off the police in mahoning county, free the prisioners thats ok with these nitwits, but by golly they will play the smoke police in a casino. They are truly gutless moronic wonders.
