Florida's Gaming Control Commission is looking to create more than 70 jobs with its 2022 budget.
Julie Brown with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation says the state's new gaming control commission includes two budget entities, the Executive Direction arm and the Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Brown says 51 new full-time jobs are being proposed under Executive Direction arm of the commission totaling $7.5-million. The Division of Gaming Enforcement would see 20 new full-time jobs being created including 15 sworn officers, with a budget request totaling $2.4-million. The rest of the funding requested is for one-time purchases including equipment and vehicles, plus set up costs.
