A company whose workers were hurt when a floor collapsed at an Ohio casino construction site says it's ready to resume work when investigators decide it's safe.

More than a dozen people were hurt Friday morning at the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati site, where they were pouring a section of concrete floor. Most were treated for bumps and scrapes and released.

The president of Cincinnati-based Jostin Construction says four employees suffered orthopedic injuries. Three needed surgery.

Kasich Agreement With Casinos Impacts Dayton

Jun 17, 2011

In this week's PoliticsOhio, Emily McCord speaks with the Dayton Daily News' Ellen Belcher to discuss how Kasich's deal with casino operators brings the potential for video lottery terminals to Dayton but critics from the left and the right are coming out against it. Belcher explains why and what the future holds for the games in the state.

Ohio will get an additional $110-million thanks to a deal reached between Governor John Kasich and casino operator Rock Ohio Caesars. In exchange ROC will only pay Ohio's commercial activity tax on what people wager, minus winnings. Rock CEO Dan Gilbert calls the deal fair and reliable.

Gilbert says the size and scope of the Cincinnati casino isn't changing. He expects to open in spring 2013. Governor Kasich says Ohio needed a comprehensive gaming plan.
