According to US gambling news, the Alabama legislature will discuss four gambling and lottery related bills in 2017.
Alabama House Minority Leader, Craig Ford introduced four gambling-related bills for the 2017 session of the Legislature. Ford sponsored many Alabama lottery bills in the past two years, but all of them died because of disagreements between legislators. This year, the Legislature held special sessions to discuss the possibilities of a lottery in the state but all of them ended without coming to agreement. One of the four new bills would set up a state lottery, another would legalize a wider spectrum of gambling.
