Lawmakers voting on electronic slots

The Associated Press

COLUMBUS - House lawmakers planned to vote late Wednesday on placing electronic slot machines at horse racetracks, though the chances of success remained in doubt.

Rep. Bill Seitz, a Cincinnati Republican, said the vote would be held on the plan which splits slots' profits between schools and college scholarships.

It was unclear whether the combination of Republican and Democratic votes were enough to pass the proposal.

The proposal required a two-thirds majority of the 99-member House to pass.
