On Tuesday an announcement was made that signatures will begin to be gathered
for a measure to be added to the 2018 ballot.
If the group is successful Florida residents will be allowed to vote on whether
or not the state will allow Las Vegas style gaming.
700,000 signatures are needed.
Currently there is a pending court case over horse and dog tracks being able to
operate slot machines. If the court allows for the slot machine operation, group
organizers want to be sure the amendment will be on the ballot.
Earlier this month it was ruled that slot machines could not be in operation at
a track 25 miles west Tallahassee by the 1st District Court of Appeal. The
Florida Supreme Court will most likely make the final ruling.
If the court decides against the race tracks, the group believes the amendment
will not be necessary.
