MONTGOMERY, AL (WIAT) A House committee recently heard arguments on a gaming bill, sponsored by Rep. Pebblin Warren, D-Tuskegee.

The bill is a separate issue from the lottery proposals. This bill would amend the Alabama Constitution to expand gaming in Macon County, where VictoryLand is located.

This measure would propose a local amendment to the 1901 Constitution of Alabama, relating to Macon County, to provide that the game of bingo authorized to be played in Macon County may be played on any electronic machine authorized by the National Indian Gaming Commission pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act and operated by any Native American tribe in Alabama.
