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 November 21, 2016:
Brief Explanation of the Rules
This is the Commission’s fifth package of five-year review rules for 2016. This batch includes rules relating to electronic gaming equipment, promotional activities, and certified independent testing laboratories. Many of the changes are small housekeeping amendments to clean up and clarify rule language. Several of the amendments remove the terms “applicant or licensee” and instead use the name of the entity in an effort to streamline and clarify Ohio Adm. Code 3772 in its entirety. Another consistent change ensures that provisions of general applicability apply to all Commission rules by replacing the words “this chapter” with “rules adopted by the commission.”
