In this opinion, the Florida Supreme Court says that the ballot proposal contains two separate subjects—authorizing slots and taxing on only a majority vote—which violates the requirement that a constitutional amendment can contain only one subject. For that reason, the measure is also defective because its summary is deceptive. Accordingly, the Florida Supreme Court ordered the ballot measure not to be placed before the voters.
