Gov. Kasich unhappy with terms for Ohio casinos

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.

Kasich is greedy, and probably would not want casinos at all if he had his way!

Suggest removal:

I am not a supporter of Kasich but think that he is absolutely correct that we got a bad deal with that contract.

Suggest removal:
