COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – We may be able to count on just one hand the number of months when legal sports betting comes to Ohio.

State Senator Kirk Schuring played a big role in putting the legislation together.

He thinks all facets of sports gaming in the state could be ready to roll by mid or late Fall.

Schuring says the rulemaking process is coming along.

He reminds us that the brick-and-mortar locations, sports teams, amd mobile app operators all want to start operations at the very same time.

The governor signed the bill last December and it became law in March.

Schuring believes the number of options available will make it one of the best programs in the country.
