Bill banning internet cafes moving forward

Posted: Updated:

The Ohio Senate has done an about-face and has decided to tackle the internet cafe bill.

Senate president Keith Faber said Wednesday, that they are ready to move forward with the bill, sponsored by Allen County state representative Matt Huffman, that would essentially outlaw internet cafes. The bill had been stalled in the senate but Faber says a majority of his caucus now agrees that sweepstakes parlors are illegal and should be banned. This change comes on the heels of Attorney General Mike DeWine's office raiding six parlors in Cleveland last week.

The bill is now in a senate committee.
