During his weekly appearance on Canton Morning News with Pam Cook on 1480 WHBC, State Sen. Kirk Schuring (R) announced the 250 page bill will be formally introduced this week and put in front of the Ohio Select Committee on Gaming. Schuring also said he will hold a press conference on Thursday morning to discuss the finer details of the bill. “It’s coming, and it’s coming soon,” Schuring said on Cook’s show. The bill won’t be perfect on introduction, he said, but will be used as a jumping off point for hearings and will hopefully answer some questions for interested parties in the state.
