TALLAHASSEE - Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum has asked the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) to stop Class III gaming at Seminole casinos. Class III gaming includes Las Vegas-style slot machines and blackjack. It was agreed to by Gov. Crist and later invalidated by the Florida Supreme Court in a July 3rd ruling.

McCollum says Florida does not have jurisdiction to stop this gambling activity on tribal property.

"I find myself and the state of Florida in the untenable position of having a tribal gaming operation, which everyone acknowledges is unauthorized, ongoing without the jurisdiction to stop the illegal gaming activities," he said in a letter to the chairman of the NIGC. "As a former United States attorney, I know you can understand the frustration of a law enforcement official forced to stand by and watch illegal activities going on with impunity."

The letter continued, "As the regulatory official holding the power to enforce this law, the chairman should take action immediately to see that the tribe ceases its illegal activity until a valid compact can be consummated with the state of Florida."
