ALABAMA LOTTERY BILL HEADED TO HOUSE COMMITTEES
By WVUA 23 Student Reporter Madison MacLean
Despite passing in the Senate last week, Alabama’s proposed lottery bill is up for discussion and is expected to face multiple amendments before it gets into voters’ hands.
One major change the bill has already seen is the decision to budget a 10 percent slice of the lottery proceeds toward education.
If the bill passes in a committee Tuesday, it will move to the house Wednesday.
There have already been several amendments on the bill, and it is expected to see more before it takes its final form.
With so many changes and more to come, the details of the bill and its various parts will be ironed out.
Understanding these changes is the next step as the bill moves from the Senate to the House, and at least 63 House members have to support the bill in order for it to pass.
