Strickland’s VLT Directive: Ohio Will Have Up to 17,500 Slots!

The state keeps 50% of all net revenue, each track will pay $65,000,000 for a license, and each of the 7 racetracks can have up to 2500 VLTs.

Here is the text:


This is expected to raise (supposedly) $933 million over the biennium, but I still think a deficit will linger and Strickland better pray the gambling ballot issues passes. In the mean time, Senate Republicans bought Gov. Strickland more than 6 months of breathing room and he gets to campaign as a fiscal conservative who didn’t raise taxes. Great job, idiots.

In the mean time, Mr. Zanotti- Let the lawsuits fly!

    Best line in your post … “Great Job, idiots.”

    You are right… now Teddy gets to go back to campaigning … Ted will be reelected. Republicans probably lose the apportionment Board too…

    You know, that picture Matt has of Strickland eating Jell-O at top… How do we know that’s whip cream from Jell-O? That could just as easily be him at Subway. Extra mayo!
