The push to get sports gambling on the 2022 ballot heats up after the state's gaming compact with the Seminole tribe is thrown out by a federal court. Florida Education Champions political committee spokesperson David Johnson says they need about 900-thousand valid signatures by Feb 1st of next year to be considered.
Florida Education Champions estimate an economic impact of more than three-point-five-billion dollars per year. The Seminole tribe is appealing the decision against the compact that gives it exclusive rights to sports betting in Florida.
