In an <a href="http://www.ocala.com/article/20091015/ARTICLES/910151009/1402/NEWS?Title=Without-shuffle-no-deal">Ocala.Com</a> story today, House Rep. Bill Galvano repeats his mantra that the Florida House will stand firm in its opposition to a Seminole Compact that deviates significantly from the blueprint laid out in Senate Bill 788.

Dean Cannon – an ardent opponent of gambling – will become House Speaker.
