BREAKING: Lottery bill passes committee



Sen. Greg Allbritton‘s (R-Range) lottery bill passed the Senate Tourism and Marketing Committee.

The bill would establish a paper lottery only. It now heads to the full Senate for a vote.


MONTGOMERY, AL (WIAT) — The Alabama Senate Tourism and Marketing committee will take up a lottery proposal Tuesday.

The bill was introduced by Republican state senator Greg Albritton. His bill would establish a paper-ticket lottery only.

Many lawmaker referrers to this as a clean lottery bill, meaning it doesn’t involve electric gaming.

Senator Jim McClendon also has a lottery bill in the legislature, but his bill isn’t being considered this week. McClendon’s bill would allow for electronic gaming.

If Albritton’s bill passes the committee, it is expected to get a vote in the Senate on Thursday.
