Pari-mutuel industry makes its case against state's Indian gaming contract

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's pari-mutuel industry will
make its case against the state's Indian gaming compact before the
House Select Committee on Seminole Indian Compact Review.

The committee meets this afternoon and officials with the
state's pari-mutuels are expected to tell lawmakers that they will
lose business if the state accepts the gaming compact negotiated
between Gov. Charlie Crist and the Seminole Indian Tribe.

The agreement, which the state Supreme Court ruled last year was
invalid because it wasn't approved by the Legislature, would give
the Seminole Tribe the right to offer blackjack and other casino
games at their gaming facilities.
