COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The state of Ohio says its schools are getting more than $45 million next month from casino tax revenue.
The Ohio Department of Taxation figures released this week show that's a 19-percent increase from the first distribution in January. The higher number reflects the February opening of the state's fourth casino, in Cincinnati.
The exact amount each school district will receive won't be known until the new school year begins, but generally the semi-annual payments to schools from the casino tax fund amounts to about $20 per pupil.
The estimated $45.4 million payment compares with $38 million received by schools in January for the previous six months.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1ae3uDe) reports a total of $70.6 million came to the state from casino taxes in the quarter ending June 30.
