Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro intends to ‘veto’ proposed casino legislation

Lawmakers in Brazil continue to debate over plans to legalize casino gambling, but President Jair Bolsonaro has already declared that he will ‘veto’ any such legislation. Casting dark clouds over lawmakers’ gaming-related efforts, President Bolsonaro said that lawmakers debating over casino gambling legalization plans are just wasting their time as he will not support any such legislation if it arrives to his desk. Thus, any gambling legislation passed by the South American country’s National Congress should be assumed dead on its arrival to the governor’s desk.
