Florida Politics: Two House bills weaving the legal framework for the Seminole Compact’s impact on horse racing and on fantasy sports betting won approval Monday from the House Select Subcommittee on Authorized Gaming Activity.

Both bills, Republican Rep. Chris Latvala‘s HB 7A for decoupling casinos from pari-mutuel betting and Republican Rep. Josie Tomkow‘s HB 9A for fantasy sports, seek to create new parameters for gambling outside of Seminole Tribe of Florida casinos.

Both make it likely for Floridians to see gambling expand in those non-tribal games. The Seminole Compact itself is covered in HB 1A, which was not heard by the select subcommittee.
