Panel sends billion dollar compact to House floor

Tallahassee, Florida (AP) April 2010

A compact with the Florida Seminole Indian Tribe is moving closer to fruition.

A House panel April 8th approved the latest version of a deal that will pay nearly $1.3 billion into state coffers over the next five years. The Seminoles tribal council unanimously approved the proposal Wednesday.

The 20-year agreement gives the tribe exclusive operation of blackjack and two other card games at casinos in Broward County and Tampa and Immokalee. All seven of the tribe’s casinos in Florida would continue to operate Las Vegas-style slot machines.

The measure, which has the strong support of Gov. Charlie Crist, still needs to win passage in the full House and the Florida Senate.
