TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The House and Senate took a step closer
to a deal on a proposed Seminole Indian gambling agreement.

The Senate proposal would also allow horse and dog tracks and
jai-alai frontons to install slot-like video machines if the tribe
doesn't have casinos in the same county and if voters approve.
