Statement of No Casinos President John Sowinski re: HB 1233

The following statements can be attributed to No Casinos President John Sowinski regarding HB 1233 unveiled by Representative Dana Young today:

“This bill would cause the biggest expansion of gambling in Florida history. It invites wall to wall casino gambling in Florida, and the social costs and crime that go with it.”

“It creates so much new gambling, that it also launches a vast new government bureaucracy to try to regulate it.”

“It defies logic for Florida to increase its dependence on gambling at a time when casino economies across America are imploding.”
