Florida Amendment Could Do Damage To Gambling

10/28/2018

There is an amendment that Florida voters are going to get to have their say on in the November election. It is in regards to gambling in that state. The amendment is amendment number three on the ballot this year, and it is one that has the potential to dramatically change Florida law as it relates to gambling. 

It is highly unfortunate that the wording of this amendment is laid out in such a way as to make it highly confusing to the reader. In fact, many have walked away after having read the amendment believing that it will help strengthen legalized gambling within the state. That is not the intent of the amendment. 

The amendment basically states that the state of Florida shall have all final say as to any changes in gambling laws. It almost seems as though the state is wanting to have this passed so as to give itself greater authority over the Federal government when it comes to setting their own laws on gambling. It would be nice if that were the case, but it does not appear that this is the intent of the law. Sadly, those who are pushing for this law are wanting to do so as a means to strip away some of the legal gambling that is currently done on Native American reservations within Florida. 

All of this has been nothing more than an attempt to take away the rights that have been afforded to Native American tribes in the state. The worse part is that the amendment has been crafted in a way that is almost set up to confuse voters into thinking that they are not voting against gambling rights. 

There are going to be a lot of interesting races when it comes to the election in early November, and this is definitely going to be one to watch. It is flying under the radar in a lot of ways because there are so many interesting races to keep an eye on in Florida in particular. That is something that people should be made aware of if they are not already.
