TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Associated Press) -- The Florida Legislature is rejecting a proposed $3 billion gambling deal negotiated between the Seminole Tribe of Florida and Gov. Rick Scott.

The deal died Friday after the Florida House failed to consider a major gambling bill that allowed the tribe to add craps and roulette at their existing casinos. The bill would have also allowed slot machines to be added at existing dog and horse tracks across the state.

House leaders did not take up the legislation because a companion measure had completely stalled in a Senate committee. Senate leaders announced earlier this week that they had no plans to consider it.

The Seminole Tribe had promised thousands of new jobs and a $1.8 billion expansion of its casinos if the deal was approved.
