Seminole Tribe Gambling Bill Approved By Florida Lawmakers

May 12, 2009

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Senate and House finally agreed on a deal to receive at least $150 million a year from the Seminole Tribe in exchange for allowing the tribe to keep slot machines in all seven of their casinos and play blackjack in Tampa and Broward County.

The Senate passed their bill SB 788 by a 31-9 vote, and the House later passed it by a 82-35 vote. It now goes to Gov. Charlie Crist for signature.

The bill is not as good as the deal the Seminoles signed with Gov. Crist in 2007, and there are no guarantees the tribe will accept it. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that Crist did not have the authority to sign that agreement.
