I am writing to encourage your support of HB 514, sponsored by Rep. John Adams. He introduced it to block the Ohio Lottery Commission from proceeding with plans to implement a state-run Keno game. As a member of the Center for Moral Clarity, an Ohio-based Christian grassroots organization, I firmly believe the state has no business overseeing and profiting from an expansion of gambling.
Gambling ruins lives and destroys families. Ohio was correct to shut down the so-called “games of skill” industry last year, and should not start its own version of that industry now. Please sign on to this bill as a sponsor, if you have not already done so, and work for its passage before the General Assembly adjourns this year.
Thank you for considering my opinion.
