Statement from President Negron and Speaker Corcoran Regarding Gaming Legislation

Tallahassee —

Florida Senate President Joe Negron (R-Stuart) and House Speaker Richard Corcoran (R-Land O’Lakes) today released the following statement regarding proposed legislation on gaming considered during the 2018 Legislative Session.


“Despite the good faith efforts of both the House and Senate, a gaming bill will not pass the Legislature this session. We appreciate the tireless efforts of Chair Hutson and Chair La Rosa, as well as the many members of the House and Senate, and the professional staff, who worked diligently during these final days and hours of session. Gaming remains one of the most difficult issues we face as a Legislature. We are pleased with the progress made over the last week and know that our colleagues will continue to work on this important issue.”
