Tallahassee, Fla. (WTXL) - The Senate's Regulated Industries committee will hear legislation to make a deal with the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

The Senate hosts a four-hour gambling hearing Tuesday.  Previously attempted deals have not yet met success due to size and competition.  

This year, the Seminoles sued the state and won rights to continue offering casino black jack.  This win improves the odds of passing legislation.
