The Commission of Economic Development, Industry and Commerce (CEDIC) has given its approval to a proposal that would allow casinos within that country. The House of Representatives sponsored commission provides regulations that would limit the constructing of six casinos in the north, north-east and central-west regions of Brazil and has penalties built in for companies that allow problem gamblers to play. All revenues generated are targeted to go to the health sector. Further casino licenses would be restricted for the first five years, giving the government time to assess the affect on the country. The proposal now must make it through various other government commissions and agencies before being enacted.
