Alabama lawmaker files bill to legalize state lottery, casino gambling, and sports betting

Mar 3, 2022

An Alabama lawmaker on Thursday introduced a proposal to create a lottery and allow multiple casinos, as well as sports betting, in the state, but the bill faces a ticking legislative clock and long-term divisions that have sunk previous gambling proposals.

“It’s time Alabama got in the game,” Republican Sen. Greg Albritton said at a news conference.
