Josh Hafenbrack of the Sun-Sentinel has written a <a href="http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/broward/sfl-parimutuel-gambling-073109,0,4853332.story">story</a> that sums up what many of us fear – that the future of the state’s parimutuel industry, not just the future of poker in Florida, hinges on the Seminole Tribe reaching an acceptable compact agreement with Gov. Charlie Crist.

Hafenbrack interviews lobbyists for the industry who admit their in wait-and-see mode, and are ready to go back to the Legislature to get relief next session if the compact deal falls through.
