Legislation to introduce a brand new gambling compact along with Seminole Tribe is conked in the Florida Senate. As per a report appeared on a leading website, it is likely that it would not be moving anywhere in this session.
This is really not a great news for a state which economically benefits from the Seminole Tribe’s gaming operations which have prompted Florida to the 3rd largest tribal gaming market in the nation, trailing just to Oklahoma and California. The casino market of the Sunshine State is worth around US$ 2.4 billion yearly, and this is still developing.
Florida’s governor, in late 2015, brokered a brand new twenty year contract which would offer the state US$ 3 billion over the first 7 years and probably billions more by the end, in exchange for allowing the Seminoles maintain and expand some exclusive gambling compensates.
Last summer, the earlier compact expired and the tribe has been carrying on their business as usual at its 7 casinos since then. Still, the Seminoles sued Florida regarding the former’s call that its exclusiveness for table games has been breached already. The state has taken the fact that the tribe is presently operating without a compact to court.
