A Gambling Vote Falls 1 Short in Senate

*Status: On Tuesday (April 30th), the gambling Conference Committee produced two bills (HB151 & HB152). Shortly afterwards, the House easily passed those bills. Later on that same night, the Senate voted and the bills failed by 1 vote (20 “Yes” votes to 15 “No” votes; 21 was needed to pass). The Senate could vote again on the legislation before the end of the Legislative Session. For more information, listen to ALCAP President Greg Davis here.*

Please contact (or re-contact) your Senators and encourage them to vote NO to legitimizing the gambling industry.
