Florida Senate president hints at special session for Seminole gambling agreement Regan McCarthy, WFSU Radio · April 18, 2021 at 8:56 am Florida Senate President Wilton Simpson says he’s hopeful this could be the year the state inks a new gambling deal with the Seminole Indian Tribe. But he says it might have to happen during a special session. “We’re in a reasonable place that a compact could get finished sometime this year. Maybe in the next week or two, maybe in a special session. And I’m not pushing that off. These are complex issues and it takes awhile. I believe we are engaged properly to try to get that completed.” A new gambling agreement with the tribe would mean Seminole Casinos could offer more kinds of games like craps and roulette.
