Attention grows on Alabama’s stalled casino and lottery bill as legislative session winds down

Home » Attention grows on Alabama’s stalled casino and lottery bill as legislative session winds down

Legislation allowing for a vote on a statewide lottery and the authorization of seven casinos for electronic gaming continued to stall on Thursday, two days after a late-night vote fell one-vote short of advancing.

The Alabama Senate did not bring up either HB151 or HB152 on Thursday – both pieces of legislation that represents the state’s best attempt at authorizing a vote for a lottery and casino gambling since 1999.

“Much debate, much discussion today,” said Alabama State Senate President Pro Tem Greg Reed, R-Jasper. “I don’t know what the outcome will be other than membership is working on the issue.”

The constitutional amendment — HB151 – failed to advance out of the Senate by one vote on Tuesday, after it was voted out of the Alabama House.
