It looks like the budget of the state of Ohio is about to be thrown back into turmoil. The governor and state legislature built the budget for the next two years upon a plan that has gambling revenues as a $900 million+ cornerstone. Trouble is, except for the lottery and horse race tracks, gambling is illegal in Ohio. A court challenge to the politicians' move has led to the Supreme Court of Ohio agreeing with gambling opponents: the issue of video slot machine installations at race tracks belongs before the voters; that would push back the new funding to more than a year from now. I guess that's what happens when you bet government operations on a toss of the dice!
