SPORTS BETTING


SPORTS WAGERING ISN'T LEGAL IN OHIO YET, BUT SOME STATE LEGISLATORS ARE BETTING THAT A BILL WILL MAKE IT TO THE GOVERNOR'S DESK BEFORE THE LEGISLATURE LEAVES NEXT SPRING. 
THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH REPORTS THAT THE BIGGEST BARRIER TO LETTING PEOPLE BET ON FOOTBALL GAMES ISN'T WHETHER TO INCLUDE COLLEGIATE TEAMS AND IT'S NOT ABOUT ONLINE BETTING; THE SPLIT IS WHETHER TO PUT THE OHIO CASINO COMMISSION OR THE OHIO LOTTERY COMMISSION IN CHARGE. RIVAL BILLS INTRODUCED IN THE OHIO HOUSE AND SENATE WOULD CEDE CONTROL - AND THE TAX REVENUE ITS EXPECTED TO GENERATE TO ONE OF THE AGENCIES.
BUT EXPERTS AGREE THAT, UNDER EITHER PLAN, THE MONEY COMING INTO OHIO'S COFFERS WOULD BE MINIMAL, AMOUNTING TO $8-TO- 12 MILLION ANNUALLY.
