Ohio House Bill 282 was introduced by Ohio Representatives Adam Homes and Jeff LaRe in June in order to allow charitable organizations that currently offer instant bingo to offer the game using an electronic instant bingo device.
The Ohio Attorney General allows Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs) to have bingo in their meeting halls and bars as long as they donate all of the proceeds to a charitable organization. RLF has been the proud recipient of these funds from a number of Amvets Posts, especially Post 26.
At the request of Ohio Amvets Executive Director Don McCauley, in mid-October, RLF provided written testimony in support of the bill during its hearing in the Ohio House Finance Committee. The bill is expected to pass both chambers of the General Assembly in 2020.
