Governor Charlie Crist signed the gambling bill passed by the legislature after great conflict and compromise. The Senate wanted full-scale casino gambling, while the House wanted less gambling. They met somewhere in the middle allowing the Seminoles to continue blackjack at their Hollywood casino and also add it at their Coconut Creek casino. The Seminoles, however, want blackjack at all their casinos. The deal now rests with them.

"I feel firmly that the tribe couldn't live with it and the Department of the Interior wouldn't approve it," said Barry Richard, attorney for the Seminole tribe.

Representative Bill Galvano said, "If we're talking about filling in details or making a policy tweak, that's not going to be very difficult, but if the tribe expects that we would come back to the Legislature with major structural changes, I think the more appealing route would be to just let the feds enforce."
