I'd say it goes back a lot farther than that. Way before that 4% stuff.
Orlando was denied a cardroom due to local (county) opposition, not because of economics. Maybe, Disney was an influence, too, but the locals just wouldn't allow it. So, just forget everything in the Birdoff era.
If they HAD gotten a cardroom back in the day, then Hort Soper might not have even sold, and jai-alai might still be running.
