Progress Report: Most Options to Aid Pari-Mutuel Industry Not Implemented; Legislature Determining How to Regulate Slot Machines, Report No. 05-28, April 2005
Full report in PDF format

The financial health of the pari-mutuel industry has not improved, and tax revenues have not been sufficient to cover both regulatory costs and the distribution of funds to counties. However, the recent constitutional amendment and local referendum to authorize slot machines at pari-mutuel facilities in Broward County will likely increase state revenues. The division and Legislature have not yet implemented options for cutting state regulatory costs or revising the distribution of funds to counties.
