Over a million Floridians signed petitions placing Amendment 3 on the ballot. It was written BY voters, FOR voters—so here are 3 REASONS to vote YES ON 3:
- Amendment 3 empowers voters—not politicians and lobbyists. For decades, Florida voters decided casino gambling issues in the Sunshine State. Then, politicians took that power for themselves. Amendment 3 simply returns control of casino gambling issues to the voters. That’s how it used to work in Florida—and how it still works in states across the country. Most Americans already have the power to vote on casino gambling issues—you should, too!
- Amendment 3 reduces casino corruption. In the last decade, powerful casino gambling interests gave over $50 million to Florida politicians. Today, they control many politicians—but they can’t control Amendment 3 ends casino corruption by putting voters—not politicians and lobbyists—in charge of gambling decisions in Florida.
- Amendment 3 allows our elected officials to focus on more important issues. Unfortunately, casino interests have so much money and influence that they often “set the agenda” in Tallahassee. Amendment 3 takes the power away from Tallahassee, so our elected officials can stop focusing on gambling and start working on issues that affect all of us, like: education, traffic, healthcare, jobs and the environment—just to name a few!
Unfortunately, casino lobbyists are attacking Amendment 3 because it takes away their power and returns it to you. They’re trying to trick you into denying yourself the right to vote. Don’t buy their false attacks. Amendment 3 is simple and it does just one thing: It gives voters—not politicians and lobbyists—control of gambling decisions in Florida.
