Fla Senate wants to hear from Floridians on gambling

by John Kennedy | October 10th, 2013

In advance of public hearings on gambling planned around the state, the Florida Senate has set up a website for Floridians to air their views on the issue currently — and the prospects of bringing full-scale casinos to the state.

The first hearing is scheduled for 4 p.m., Oct. 23, at the Broward College North Campus in Coconut Creek. Other hearings are scheduled for Lakeland, Pensacola and Jacksonville stretching into mid-November. The website for submitting comments or signing up to speak at a hearing is: http://www.flsenate.gov/topics/gaming.

The site has plenty more information, including a downloadable copy of the  “Florida Gambling Impact Study,” now before lawmakers.

“Understanding local perspectives and personal impacts is an instrumental component of public policy decisions that could impact the future of gaming in our state for generations,” said Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, chairman of the Senate Committee on Gaming.

    Do you realize how many people go to Mississippi to gamble. All that money should be here in Florida. We the gamblers have limited gambling and not many choices of casino’s to go to. Lets get together and pass a gambling bill that will allow people to stay in Florida and gamble. Instead of going out of state.

    I am an avid gambler I drive from Lake Worth to Pompano Beach Isle Casino at least twice a week and once a month my Husband and I go to Biloxi, It is high time for Palm Beach county to get in on the action
    I would like to donate all my losses to Palm Beach County instead of Broward & Biloxi. The revenue alone would help the county let alone the jobs it would create for people and tourist to spend
    more money here. Palm Beach County needs to reap the rewards instead of other Counties & States.
