A new gaming bill that was passed by both the Ohio House and Senate is now heading to the governor. The bill regulates the state's casinos and race track slot operations. It will also give money to communities that have the gaming facilities.

Penn National is planning on moving its racetrack to Austintown. The company bought land on Route 46. If the bill is signed by the governor, that racetrack will be built and operate video gaming slot machines.

Also, if the governor approves the bill, $1 million a year for two years will be paid to the communities that have the gaming facilities. The money will pay for casino road improvements, as well as additional police officers.

Austintown could receive a check by December of this year.

The governor's signature is the final step needed for the bill to be approved.
