Key lawmakers and gaming executives discussed bringing casino gambling to South Florida during a forum Monday at Jungle Island.

The event, hosted by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, allowed participants to ask questions and vote in a straw poll. Among the speakers: state Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff and state Rep. Erik Fresen, both of whom are sponsoring legislation that would authorize three casino licenses in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
