The political committee, lobbying for adopting a constitutional amendment that would complicate the expansion of gambling operators in the state of Florida has received support from the Disney Empire.
Disney Worldwide Services transferred $ 250,000 to the Voters in Charge committee, which advocates that voters, not politicians, make a decision to build gambling establishments in Florida. The Committee seeks to introduce an appropriate constitutional amendment to the ballot of the election to be held in November 2018.
The wording of the proposed legislative changes was agreed with the Supreme Court of Florida in April. If it is approved, the voters will receive an “exclusive right to decide whether or not to allow gambling” in the state.
Despite the gambling ban in Florida, with the exception of the Seminole tribe casinos, large gambling operators are lobbying for the gambling legalization.
