Ohio Developer Files for Gambling Vote - Tuesday 13th of June 2006

COLUMBUS, Ohio – 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.

"…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…"
