Alabama lawmakers to consider legalizing sports gambling and casinos
Alabama lawmakers are set to consider several gambling bills during the legislative session.
Alabama lawmakers are pushing for legalized gambling as neighboring states enjoy increased revenue. Over 30 states in the US allow it, and the lack of legal options in Alabama causes the state to lose out on potential revenue.
Gambling is already prevalent in the state despite being illegal, and lawmakers are hoping to legalize and regulate it to benefit the economy. The legislative session starting Tuesday may see several gaming bills dropped in the House and Senate.
