|Arguments For Issue 2||Arguments Against Issue 2|
|Proponents of the proposed amendment argue that:|
1. Only the location of the casino in Columbus is affected. There is no effect on the casinos approved in Cleveland, Toledo and Cincinnati.
2. Authorizing a change in the location of the Columbus casino will ensure faster development of the casino because fewer infrastructure improvements are needed.
3. The location of the casino would be moved to a community that is in need of economic development and that has demonstrated support for the casino.
|Opponents of the proposed amendment argue that:|
1. If the amendment approved in November of 2009 is amended, any change should include an increase in the tax revenue the casinos should generate.
