Yesterday, the Ohio Senate has introduced legislation that would legalize sports wagering in the state.  Sen. Kirk Schuring, R-Canton, who led a select committee that studied sports gambling in the early months of 2021, told the Ohio Capital Journal that lawmakers see the issue less as a matter of state revenue generation and more about regulating an activity that many Ohioans are already involved with.  Senate Schuring stated in a Thursday news conference that:   "Gaming is here today in Ohio and all we want to do is put guardrails around it to make sure it's done correctly.”   Below please find a link to the Bill as well as to a news report published by the Ohio based Statehouse News Bureau.
