May 17, 2018 CSI Filing

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 rule to the CSI office for review on May 17, 2018: 

Brief Explanation of the Rule 
3772-50-05, titled “Skill-based amusement machine key employee licensure” is part of the Commission’s regulation of skill-based amusement machines. This rule establishes the licensing factors used by the Commission to evaluate the suitability for licensure of skill-based amusement machine key employees. The rule further describes the process for obtaining a license as a skill-based amusement machine key employee, including applying through the state of Ohio’s eLicense system, an application fee of two hundred fifty dollars, and a license fee of two hundred fifty dollars. The proposed amendments to this rule eliminate a previous requirement that a skill-based amusement machine key employee obtain a BCI/FBI criminal background check. The purpose of the rule is to provide guidance as to the application and licensing procedure used by the Commission to license a person as a skill-based amusement machine key employee.
