Budget Would Expand Casino Commission Authority Over Skill Game Operations

Dir. Schuler seeks language in the budget bill

Gov. John Kasich's executive budget gives the Casino Control Commission another chance to expand their authority over skill game operations, but the new proposal is pared down from a bill that stalled last year.

The budget bill (HB 64*) would grant the OCCC authority to license and regulate businesses operating skill-based amusement machines, according to the Legislative Service Commission's analysis. The commission could adopt rules establishing fees and penalties that could pay for the additional regulatory burden.
