COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich has made two bills law.
One measure signed Tuesday halts the expansion of Internet cafes where patrons buy cards for phone and Internet time with chances to play computer games that operate like slot machines with cash prizes. The measure extends a moratorium on any new cafes and requires those currently in operation to submit new affidavits to the state.
Another measure corrects a state law that inadvertently allowed coaches and referees in youth sports leagues to be criminally prosecuted for violating rules regarding players' head injuries. Coaches, volunteers and officials now must have players who show concussion-like symptoms sit out games or practices until they're checked and cleared by a doctor or licensed health care provider.
Both bills are effective with Kasich's signature.
