Destination Gaming Resort Bill
A Senate committee Monday will consider a sweeping proposal that would allow three mega-casinos in Florida, offer the possibility of additional gambling at pari-mutuel facilities and try to rein in Internet cafes.
It’s a new twist in a casino controversy that has people taking sides. The legislation proposed to bring mega destination gambling resorts to South Florida is changing and expanding gambling even more to include pari-mutuels.
The Seminole Tribe of Florida confirmed Thursday what those following the gaming debate already knew – it will fight efforts to expand non-tribal gaming outside of South Florida.
