The South Florida Sun-Sentinel has reported that the Florida Supreme Court is overturning the agreement Governor Charlie Crist signed with the Seminole Tribe to expand gambling at its casinos, which include two less than a 45-minute drive from Pompano Park.
The Sun-Sentinel reported that the court ruled Thursday that Crist doesn\'t have the constitutional authority to enter into the agreement that allows Las Vegas-style slot machines, black jack and other card games. Crist brokered a deal with the Seminoles which was expected to generate at least $100 million a year for the state.
