Ohio Gov. John Kasich says if members of the public really understood it, they wouldn’t like a deal voters approved to bring Las Vegas-style casinos to four cities.

The Blade of Toledo reports that the new Republican governor doesn’t believe Ohio got a fair shake regarding terms laid out in the constitutional amendment.

The measure approved in 2009 levies a fixed tax of 33 percent on gross casino revenues.

Kasich says he hopes the state can get something more, but that going back to the ballot isn’t ideal.

Bob Tenenbaum, a spokesman for one of the casino developers, says there’s been no specific proposal that he knows of to change the terms.
