The Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida East Coast Chapter’s board of directors passed a resolution on Oct. 17 to support the effort to approve destination resort casinos in South Florida. “In this anemic economic cycle moving forward with a multi-billion projects like the proposed ‘destination resorts’ will create hundreds of thousands of local, long-term jobs and infuse hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy,” the resolution says.
