COLUMBUS --  Ohio's casino regulators have given their approval to licensing the state's second casino.

The state's first casino is due to open next Monday in Cleveland.

Meanwhile, state senators plan to vote Wednesday on a wide range of changes to Ohio's gambling laws that will set the rules for casinos and slots-like video lottery terminals coming to the state.
