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 26, 2019:
Brief Explanation of the Rules
This package contains rules subject to the five-year review for 2019. Ohio law mandates that agencies review all existing rules to determine if the rules would benefit from modification or repeal. The review must occur within five years of the rule’s effective date. This batch includes rules that relate to casino surveillance systems, responsibilities of surveillance departments, and procedures governing the Commission’s on-site surveillance rooms. Many of the changes are small housekeeping amendments to clean up and clarify rule language. One consistent change, a reflection of present practice, is codifying the Executive Director’s approval authority throughout the rule, given that role’s responsibility to administer casino gaming pursuant to R.C. 3772.06. This will allow for day-to-day casino operations to generally be more dynamic, without sacrificing regulatory oversight.
