Alabama Senate Expected to Debate Lottery Bill

Lotterybill0211 PicMONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama senators are expected to debate a lottery bill. Senators say they expect to debate the bill by Republican Sen. Jim McClendon of Springville on Wednesday. The bill would authorize a lottery where tickets could be sold at stores, kiosks, and through a phone app. McClendon said the issue of a lottery is not dead. Senators earlier this session narrowly rejected a proposal to start a state lottery and allow up to 10 casinos in the state. Alabama is one of five states without a state lottery.
