Fla. to spend nearly $400,000 on gambling study

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –?Florida is moving ahead with a critical study that could set the stage for the future expansion of gambling in the state, including whether or not Miami could become a rival to Las Vegas.

The two leaders of the Republican-controlled Legislature late last week signed a nearly $400,000 contract to have New Jersey-based Spectrum Gaming Group conduct a comprehensive study of gambling.

The company will be responsible with creating two detailed reports that closely examines the state’s mix of gambling – which also includes a state-sanctioned lottery and casinos run by the Seminole Tribe of Florida – and the impact of changing state law. The reports are meant to examine both the financial and social effects.
