Ohio sports betting bill expected to pass House Thursday Matthew Kredell, Legal Sports Report · May 28, 2020 at 7:01 am Ohio sports betting legislation is finally on the move. H 194 advanced through the House Finance Committee on Wednesday with one dissenting vote. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Dave Greenspan, tells Legal Sports Report that he expects the Ohio sports betting bill to pass on the House floor Thursday. “We’re moving it now to start negotiations with the Senate over the summer so, when we come back early in the fall, we’ll be able to get a bill on the governor’s desk by the end of the year,” Greenspan said. H 194 was last discussed in October 2019 when it received its eighth hearing in the Finance Committee.
