Senate Gambling Update

A short synopsis of Thursday night’s Gambling Vote in the Alabama Senate:

Alabama Senate Republicans split their vote to expand the size of government, bringing Class III Vegas-Style Gambling and a Lottery to Alabama – while grandfathering in current illegal operators (plus a few others for good measure) in multiple locations around the state.

15 Republicans joined with all 7 voting Democrats for 22 “Yes” votes––21 needed––to pass the bill.

Thank you to the 12 Senators who voted NO or abstained on both bills.

The bills will now return to the House of Representatives for potential concurrence.

Pictured below are the Senators and their votes.
