Re(5): Florida gambling bills, decoupling

It goes like this zjaialai56....right now slots are only legal in Broward/Dade at the parimutuels. But, the parimutuels want to change that...,they want the parimutuel requirement gone. Ok, fine....then I want to be able to open a slots casino there too! And so does Steve Wynn. And so does Sheldon Adelson. Why can't we? I mean....we don't run live jai-alai or races either....so if that isn't required now then we should be able to open a casino too. But the parimutuels won't want that competition will they? Nope. They convinced the state years ago to let THEM have the slots since they were already the parimutuels. Now they want to STILL be the only ones to have slots, but NOT be parimutuels anymore. So basically they want the FL law to be "slots are only legal at places that USED TO BE parimutuel wagering locations"....and that 'logic' is a JOKE. They got what they asked for and they need to live with it.
