Seminole Tribe airs ad in support of new gambling compact

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE — The Seminole Tribe is running television ads in hopes of convincing lawmakers to renegotiate its gambling compact.

The ads began airing Tuesday, the day after a major gambling bill was filed that would allow two massive casinos in South Florida and allow slot machines at dog tracks in Palm Beach and Lee counties

The 30-second ad tells viewers that the agreement approved nearly five years ago has provided more than $1 billion to the state. The portion of the deal that allows card games like blackjack will expire this year if it isn't renegotiated.

The ad doesn't specifically call for a new agreement, but ends by saying, “The Seminole compact — a partnership that works for Florida.”
