ALCAP Alert Dated 8/16/2016

ALCAP legal advisor, Eric Johnston, speaking at the public hearing on the five proposed Senate Bills presented to the Senate Tourism Committee.

Senate Tourism Committee just voted to advance only two of the five pro-gambling bills to the full Senate. SB3, the Governor’s pure lottery bill and SB11, Senator McClendon’s bill that allows electronic video lottery terminals at the four dog tracks throughout the state and according to the Attorney General could lead to casino gambling, were the two bills that passed by voice vote (no roll call vote).

Now, those two bills will be debated on the floor of the Senate, possibly as early as tomorrow. Pray and contact your State Senator to urge him or her to oppose SB3 and SB11!
