Battle lines drawn in Florida ahead of special legislative session on gaming Jake Stofan, Capitol News Service · May 4, 2021 at 2:30 am Lawmakers may have left for home after wrapping up the 2021 legislative session, but they are already planning to be back in the Capitol in two weeks. They’ll spend up to a week debating a new gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe. Already, campaigns for and against the gaming deal are underway. On the final day of session, the Governor teased the deal while touting the record $101.5 billion state budget. “Our budget looks great, but why not get more in the kitty, right?” said Governor Ron DeSantis. The Governor has said the deal will bring in $6 billion to the state by 2030.
