CHICAGO — Ohio will issue up to $700 million of new-money general obligation bonds over the next four years to finance a jobs program after voters approved the measure in Tuesday’s primary election.

Voters also passed a constitutional amendment that will relocate a casino originally slated to open in downtown Columbus to an abandoned manufacturing plant on the city’s outskirts. The approval marks an important victory for city officials and voters who opposed the opening of the casino in the city.
