State Representative Rex Damschroder (R-Fremont) has announced a public forum regarding Internet Cafes on Thursday, March 8th at 7PM in Fremont at Terra Community College, Building B, Room 101.
“Over the last few years, we have witnessed the growth of a new industry referred to as Internet Cafes,” Damschroder stated. “These new businesses have been a major issue in the district. It is very important to give the public an opportunity to have their voice heard, not only on recent actions in Fremont but also regarding if and how the state of Ohio should regulate these businesses. Local elected officials, members of the law enforcement community, and individuals involved with internet cafes have all indicated their attendance at this event.”
Damschroder serves on the House State Government and Elections Committee, which is considering House Bill 195, legislation seeking to regulate establishments often referred to as internet cafes.
“Due to the recent closure of three businesses in Fremont and pending legislation in the House, many individuals have contacted my office seeking information and wanting to express their views,” Damschroder added. “I would encourage all people interested in this issue to participate in this public forum.”
For any further questions regarding the public forum, please call Rep. Damschroder’s office at (614) 466-1374.
