Horse Trading Begins for Votes in Senate to Pass Video Gaming Bill
Gongwer News Service
Senate Republicans and Democrats began negotiations Tuesday aimed at producing sufficient votes to pass legislation (SB 313) to allow video gaming at Ohio's seven horse racing tracks. The negotiations were aimed at securing sufficient votes to pass the bill in the Senate and House with veto-proof majorities and as an emergency measure which would make it immune from a promised referendum effort by video gaming opponents.
