Florida Senate Begins Process to Pass Resort Casino Law for Miami's Three Vegas-Style Casinos


Here in Miami, those involved in real estate investment and land development had one eye on Tallahassee yesterday, as the Florida Senate's Committee on Regulated Industries began its consideration of casino legislation - which means, of course, the Florida Legislature is making decisions about Miami's future and the proposed three resort-casinos to be built here, starting with Genting's Resorts World Miami.

Specifically, committee debate began yesterday - including the taking of testimony - in the drafting and approval of Florida legislation that would allow these Vegas-style resorts here in Florida.

You can read the minutes of the meeting or watch a podcast of the entire proceeding this week over at the Florida Senate website.
