Ohio voters may get the chance to vote on whether or not casinos will make their way into the state.

Washington County Commissioners spoke with an official from the Ohio Jobs and Growth Plan Thursday afternoon about the proposal.

The amendment has been approved by the Ohio Attorney General, and a committee is currently working to get enough signatures from voters to place it on the November ballot.

The plan estimates 20,000 new jobs for the state; however, commissioners say they're not sure how much approval the plan will see from Washington County voters.

"This is not something that Washington County voters are going to be very excited about. And the other part of the proposal is making it a constitutional amendment. It's really gonna be tough to sell," Sam Cook, Washington County Commissioner, said.

This Ohio Jobs and Growth plan would allow four casinos to open in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo.
