A bill to prohibit Internet sweepstakes videogames has actually been renewed with its Aug. 22 passage by a 10-5 vote in the Business & Consumer Affairs Subcommittee in the Florida House, as stated by the News Service of Florida.
Funded by state Rep. Scott Plakon (R-Longwood), the bill (HB3) was originally introduced last year, yet died in the Regulated Industries Committee at the end of the legislative session on March 9, 2012.
Sources predict that Florida has 1,000 Internet cafes with sweepstakes games, where up to 10,000 individuals may work.
A campaign finance report revealed that sweepstakes game operators have donated over $ 700,000 in sponsorship of statewide candidates in the approching election
