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 February 2, 2017, and, on March 20, 2017 resubmitted rule 3772-10-26 for review:
Brief Explanation of the Rules
This package is the seventh containing rules subject to five-year review for 2016. This batch includes rules relating to casino operators’ internal controls and surveillance. 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 is replacing the term “slot machine,” with the term “electronic gaming equipment,” where applicable. This change has been made throughout five-year review to harmonize the code and clarify the applicability of the code to all electronic gaming equipment, as appropriate.
