Things looked dead in Florida after voters approved Amendment 3 in 2019, which allows Florida residents to exclusively authorize casino gambling within the state. But sports betting legislation expert Daniel Wallach says that the amendment would not stop the legislature from authorizing sports gambling. Because of that, Wallach says he expects lawmakers to approve sports betting in 2020, without the need for a citizen referendum. To that end, on Nov. 18, 2019, multiple sports betting bills were filed in the Florida legislature.
