Florida League of Cities

Gaming Control (Monitor) – Failed 

CS/CS/HB 189 (Salzman) and CS/CS/SB 1046 (Martin) are comprehensive bills dealing with gaming. Of concern to cities, the bills preempt local governments from enacting or enforcing ordinances or local rules relating to gaming, gambling, lotteries or any activities described in Section 546.10 or Chapter 849, Florida Statutes. There was an amendment added to CS/CS/SB 1046 that increased the clarity for when an establishment is required to cease and desist gaming operations in violation of the law. (Wagoner)
