Fort Lauderdale says no to casinos

The unanimous vote follows a similar decision by Miami Beach commissioners last month. Other political leaders, including Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, have embraced the proposal to bring casino resorts to South Florida. 

Florida lawmakers are considering bills that would loosen state law to allow three $2 billion casino resorts to open in Florida, following approval by county voters.
