State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently introduced legislation aimed at making changes to the Casino Operator Settlement Fund's second payment.

Sub. House Bill 377 is currently being heard in the House State and Local Government Committee and had sponsor testimony during committee yesterday. Currently there are six commercial racetracks in Ohio, but this legislation would only affect two: Thistledown and Northfield Park, both located in Northeast Ohio. These two areas are affected because they are split between more than one municipality. The legislation would seek to have the second settlement payment to be paid in proportion to the amount of real property located in each municipal corporation or township. Each municipal corporation or township receiving such a payment shall use at least 50 percent of the funds received for infrastructure or capital improvements.

“Since all the affected municipalities experience the traffic flow, it comes down to assisting those other communities in their infrastructure and capital needs, which is the right thing to do,” Rep. Anielski said.
