COLUMBUS — The legislative ball is rolling on a new bill to make changes to Ohio law regarding casino gaming, the state lottery and horse racing.

The measure, House Bill 386, would remove the requirement that the Ohio Controlling Board has to approve the fees each applicant pays for a lottery sales agent license or for administering and processing changes to an application and renewals.

The proposal would also revise the length of time a lottery sales agent license or renewal is effective to at least one year but no more than three years.
