Casino Watch Focus has reported the ongoing progression of Florida Amendment 3. The Amendment found itself on the Nov ballot with easy and the polls have shown overwhelming support. That said, it’s still important to clearly understand the three reasons why you should vote Yes on Amendment 3. The Voters in Charge website provides great resources for those looking to dive deeper into the issue. Luckily, it’s an extremely straight forward amendment that requires any gambling expansion decisions by the Florida legislator to be approved by voters before it can become law. Voters in Charge provided three clear reasons why this is a very easy Yes vote:
Amendment 3 empowers voters—not politicians and lobbyists.For decades, Florida voters decided casino gambling issues in the Sunshine State. Then, politicians took that power for themselves. Amendment 3 simply returns control of casino gambling issues to the voters. That’s how it used to work in Florida—and how it still works in states across the country. Most Americans already have the power to vote on casino gambling issues—you should, too!
Amendment 3 reduces casino corruption.In the last decade, powerful casino gambling interests gave over $50 million to Florida politicians. Today, they control many politicians—but they can’t control Amendment 3 ends casino corruption by putting voters—not politicians and lobbyists—in charge of gambling decisions in Florida.
Amendment 3 allows our elected officials to focus on more important issues.Unfortunately, casino interests have so much money and influence that they often “set the agenda” in Tallahassee. Amendment 3 takes the power away from Tallahassee, so our elected officials can stop focusing on gambling and start working on issues that affect all of us, like: education, traffic, healthcare, jobs and the environment—just to name a few!
