Senate President Bill Galvano says he is optimistic about revamping a gambling agreement, known as a “compact,” between the Seminols and the state.

He said, “We’re not there yet.”

And they need to get there by the end of May, at which time the current compact deal expires.

Galvano isn’t counting on the tribe’s annual $350 million payment in next year’s budget.

Galvano was the chief negotiator on a deal between the Seminoles and the state that’s reaped Florida more than $2.2 billion since it was signed in 2010.

Sports betting “is part of the discussions,” Galvano said.

Online betting and additional casino games for the Seminoles, such as craps and roulette, also are among issues up for discussion, according to sources familiar with the talks.

“There’s still a lot that has to be done before anything can be finalized, but I am encouraged,” Galvano, R-Bradenton, said Wednesday evening.

The House and Gov. Ron DeSantis would also have to sign off even if the Senate and the Seminoles reach agreement.

Most experts agree that voters would ultimately need to approve any gambling expansion in the state.
