Senate Tourism Committee reconvened this afternoon (Wednesday, August 17) to reconsider SB26 (Constitutional Amendment to require the Governor to sign a compact with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians) and SB34 (similar to Sen. McClendon's lottery bill, SB11, which includes electronic gambling devices, but reallocates where the money goes). ALCAP opposes both of these gambling bills, as well as the other gambling bills voted out of committee yesterday, but both were voted out of committee by voice vote.
Full Senate is currently debating SB11, Sen. McClendon's lottery bill that also allows video lottery terminals at the 4 dog tracks throughout the state. Pray for gambling opponents as they stand firm and continue to contact your State Senator urging a "NO" vote on all pro-gambling bills!
