Expansion of Gambling

Florida cannot afford to bet our economic future on the expansion of gambling or the creation of destination mega-casinos. Floridians should be cautious of unsubstantiated job growth and economic development offered by mega casinos. Las Vegas-style casinos don’t compliment positive, long-term economic development. Instead, they weaken our brand and burden our cities with debt and poverty and wipe out existing forms of commerce.
