Negotiators Agree on Fla. Indian Gaming Deal

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Legislative negotiators have agreed on
a plan to expand gambling at Seminole Indian casinos.

Gov. Charlie Crist called it a "great" deal for the state.

Crist was on hand Wednesday as Senate Ways and Means Chairman JD Alexander and Rep. Bill Galvano, the House's chief gaming
negotiator, settled their differences.

The deal would permit banked card games such as black jack and
baccarat at the tribe's three Broward County casinos and one in
Tampa. Banked card games would not be allowed at the other three
facilities in Immokalee, Brighton and Coconut Creek.

Las Vegas style slot machines would be allowed at all seven casinos.

A Seminole spokesman said the proposal was under review.
