The Alabama Legislature is about to wade back into arguments over gambling.
Sen. Del Marsh, R-Anniston, filed a constitutional amendment Tuesday evening that would authorize a state lottery; establish five casinos in the state and allow sports betting. Proceeds from gambling would go to fund postsecondary scholarships and broadband expansion.
A Senate committee is expected to consider the amendment Wednesday morning. If approved by the Legislature, it would be sent to voters for consideration.
