Re(4): Could passing #3 mean....

When it came to amendment 3, I'm pretty much in line with the others here - I voted no. While I am disgusted with the do nothing legislature's inaction on gambling, requiring a statewide vote on every single request for a casino is crazy. If Orlando wants a casino ( and I do), it should be up to Orange county voters - not the entire state to decide. Same for Daytona Beach, Ocala etc. I don't think amendment 3 changes anything on sports betting. The legislature was highly unlikely to approve anything anyway and like the lottery and casinos originally it was statewide voters who got it approved not the legislature. The only difference is now 60 % approval is required vs 50% back then. A higher bar but I think is doable. I'm pretty certain their will be a voter inspired petition drive to get the measure allowing sports betting on the 2020 ballot. We'll see.
