WE'RE LEADING THE FIGHT TO STOP GAMBLING EXPANSION IN FLORIDA
71% of Florida Voters approved Amendment 3 . . . Why is this even an issue anymore?
Because gambling lobbyists will say or do anything to get legislators to expand gambling. Now they are trying to convince legislators that there are ways around Amendment 3, or that certain types of casino gambling don’t require voter approval. They are wrong. Now it’s up to us to remind lawmakers that only voters have the authority to expand casino gambling. Period.
The Current Battle
Today the risk is even greater. The odds are even higher. But there is a big difference. Emboldened by lobbyist encouragement and a legally untested misinterpretation of Amendment 3’s scope – legislators are considering an expansion of gambling, in the form of sports betting, that would change the fabric of our state. This expansion would hurt our families, our local businesses and our family-friendly brand that is the envy of virtually every other state in our nation.
No Casinos has once again been reactivated to stop this threat to our economy, our families, our quality of life, and the character of our communities. Our supporters include the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Attractions Association, the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, the League of Women Voters of Florida, Florida Family Action, the Florida Ethics & Liberty Commission, and the Florida Sheriff’s Association – to name just a few.
