A legislative committee has advanced laws that seeks to start out a state lottery in Alabama.
The House Financial Improvement and Tourism Committee approval the bill Wednesday. It now strikes to the complete House of Representatives. The proposal would authorize a state lottery played with paper tickets however with video lottery terminals.

The committee changed the invoice to ship some money to education schemes. The substitute plan would ship 75% of proceeds to the overall fund and 25% to the schooling finances.
Rep. Steve Clouse has stated he expects an in depth Home vote. The invoice face a mix of opposition from conservative lawmakers against playing and others who need to permit digital playing terminals.
