Florida Gambling Rules Could Be Changed Soon

Florida is planning a possible overhaul of some of the rules that are used to regulate gambling facilities across the state.

The state agency that oversees dog tracks, horse tracks and jai-alai frontons and other types of gambling announced Friday it would draw up new rules because some of the current ones are unclear. The state plans to hold a workshop in October.

The move came the same day that the Florida Senate announced it was going to hold public hearings about gambling issues in October and November. The Legislature is expected to receive a final study on gambling on Oct. 1 and could take action next spring.

In the last few years, there have been numerous court battles over how the state has been regulating horse tracks.
