State weighing gambling expansion

Posted: Updated:
TALLAHASSEE (FOX 13) -

Politicians in Tallahassee are trying to figure out if expanding gambling would be worth the risk.

The Senate Gaming Committee met Monday in Tallahassee to discuss a recent report from a gambling research firm.

The Spectrum Gaming Group says expanding gambling would provide only a moderate gain for Florida's economy. The report also says that depending on where the chips fall, a gambling expansion could actually cost the state money instead.

The state will hold a public hearing on gambling in Lakeland on Oct. 30.
