Ohio Developer Files for Gambling Vote
As reported by the Cincinnati Enquirer: "The developer seeking to build a hotel with slot machines at Broadway Commons has filed a new petition seeking statewide voter approval of gambling - for a third time. "Kim Norris, spokeswoman for Attorney General Jim Petro, said the petition was filed late Friday. It contains more than 3,200 signatures. "Last Tuesday, Petro rejected a petition from hotelier Louis Beck and Queen City Gaming Entertainment because it had 83 fewer voters' names than 1,000-signature minimum. ".An additional 323,000 signatures are needed by Aug. 9 to place the issue on the Nov. 7 ballot. But they can't be collected until Petro approves petition language and the initial signatures. His office has 10 working days from Friday to complete its review."
