Legislature approves Gov. Ron DeSantis’ might propose gambling compact with the Seminole Tribe. But how likely are anti-casino gambling forces in Florida to take the state to court?
It’s a sure thing.
In an interview with the Phoenix, John Sowinski, president of No Casinos, said they’re interviewing lawyers. He works as a communications consultant.
It may not come to that if Sowinki’s lobbyists can persuade the legislature to scrap the agreement during a special session set to begin on Monday, which he said they intend to do.
However, if lawmakers agree to expand the tribe’s gambling operations, the 30-year deal would guarantee a $2.5 billion return to the state in the first five years.
