Voters will decide casino location in Columbus

February 1, 2010

COLUMBUS The Ohio House voted 71-26 to approve a ballot measure for the May primary that would change the location of a Columbus casino. The Senate previously approved the measure with a 31-2 vote.

In November, Ohio voters approved a constitutional amendment allowing casinos at specific sites in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Toledo. Since then, Columbus officials have been negotiating with casino representatives to change the site in that city. To do so will require a statewide vote again.

At the same time the House rejected attempts by Youngstown lawmakers to place a casino in the Mahoning Valley. Rep. Bob Hagan (D-Youngstown) said his community has lost 50,000 jobs in the past three decades. He said "For 23 years that I've been here, I've been waiting for people to pay attention to the struggles that we've been going through ... Anywhere that you go in my community, you will see the desperation ... For 23 years I've been waiting for the help." The House rejected Hagan's amendment
