"The proposal to build mega-casinos in South Florida never made it to a final vote in the last session of the Florida Legislature. Now it looks like the issue may not be coming up again for at least another year.

Senate President Don Gaetz is setting up a new committee to examine Florida gambling which he says is both over- and under-regulated. But Gaetz is considered an opponent of gambling and he's in no hurry to pass a casino gambling bill.

"We need to have a thoughtful approach to this," he says. "We need to make sure that we know what we're doing before we either regulate or deregulate any aspect of gaming and certainly before anything is expanded.""
