Lawmakers expected to reject Seminole Tribe compact

Lawmakers are expected to vote against a Class III gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

A House committee scheduled a vote on the deal this Thursday. Lawmakers say it gives the tribe too much control over gaming and doesn't provide the state a big enough share of casino revenues.

The tribe has been operating slot machines and table games under a compact that was approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The deal was later deemed invalid by the Florida Supreme Court.
