Created by Executive Order 2011-01K, the Common Sense Initiative (CSI), and Senate Bill 2 of the 129th General Assembly, require state agencies, including the Casino Control Commission, to draft rules in collaboration with stakeholders, assess and justify any adverse impact on the business community (as defined by Senate Bill 2), and provide opportunity for the affected public to provide input on the rules.
The Ohio Casino Control Commission submitted the following proposed rules to the CSI office for review on May 5, 2016:
Brief Explanation of the Rules
Ohio law mandates that agencies review existing rules to determine if the rules would benefit from modification or repeal. This review must occur within five years of a rule’s effective date. This batch involves rules of general application and the Commission, generally. Many of these amendments are small housekeeping changes to tighten up and clarify rule language. Several amendments are aimed at harmonizing Ohio Adm. Code 3772 with the Legislative Service Commission’s (LSC) Rule Drafting Manual. Most notably, the changes ensure that provisions of general applicability apply to all Commission rules by replacing the words “this chapter” with “rules adopted by the commission.”
