Fla. House committee votes to ban Internet cafes

The Florida Gaming Committee is considering banning gambling at internet cafes.

The move has been put on the fast track in the wake of last week's arrests of industry officials for alleged racketeering and money laundering.

The House Gaming Committee approved the ban on Friday and the Senate Gaming Committee gets its turn Monday.

The measure will clarify the definition of a slot machine and other gaming devices and prohibit new internet cafes from opening.
