Gambling bill stalls in the Alabama House as tempers flare

05.08.21 – In this article, Kim Chandler of the Associated Press reports that negotiations to provide Alabama citizens with the opportunity to vote on a constitutional amendment to legalize lotteries and casinos stalled in the Alabama House of Representatives.

A summary of the article is contained in the following quote: “…The demise of the legislation led to finger-pointing over who was responsible and an unsuccessful effort by Republicans to switch the bill for a GOP-backed lottery proposal. Republicans accused Democrats of making last-minute demands on the bill. Democrats criticized what they described as a bad-faith push by Republicans to change out the bill.”
