COLUMBUS, Ohio - The chairman of the Ohio Jobs & Growth Committee announced Wednesday that the Ohio AFL-CIO is endorsing its plan to develop four casinos in the state. The chairman, Charlie Luken, described the union backing as "strong confirmation of our belief that this proposed constitutional amendment can help Ohio's working men and women navigate these treacherous economic times."

The Ohio AFL-CIO represents 700,000 workers in 40 national unions. Its president, Joe Rugola, said "The time is right for Ohioans to embrace a responsible gaming proposal. This initiative will keep our gaming dollars in-state, create thousands of good jobs and generate billions in tax revenues."

The plan is a proposed constitutional amendment for the November ballot that will license 4 casinos, one each in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Toledo.
