Miami-Dade County seeks local review under casino law

December 23, 2011 01:27PM

A new proposal by Miami-Dade County seeks a section in the proposed
gaming law that would require up to 18 months of local government
review, according to the South Florida Business Journal. If approved, it
could mean a substantial delay for the Genting casino plan in downtown
Miami. The change additionally calls for a revision in the weighting
process for casino applications. According to Miami-Dade County, it
would mean each applicant for a casino resort would have to undergo a
review after an initial examination by the new gaming commission created
under the law. [SFBJ]
