ALCAP Alert Dated 8/26/2016

SB3 died in the Senate today as the Senate voted NOT to concur with the House version of the bill.  As we suspected, when the House amended the bill to exclude casinos, that is not what the pro-gambling people wanted.

The truth finally came out and is reflected in the attached vote count with 7 for concurrence (YES) and 23 against concurrence (NO). There were different motives for voting NO, but at this point we are celebrating the defeat of pro-gambling legislation in Alabama!

Please contact the Senators that voted NO to concur and thank them.  Also, urge them to vote in favor of the BP Settlement, so that gambling will not be needed to solve the Medicaid problem in our state.

We believe it is possible to change a self-destructive youth culture, but we need you.
