A proposed constitutional amendment offered by State Senator Jim McClendon, R-Springville, gives the people of Alabama the right to vote on a lottery. McClendon’s legislation is a clean bill because it only covers one subject: a lottery.

Opponents of the bill, and even some supporters, have mischaracterized portions of the constitutional amendment or failed to grasp it offerings and limitations. This is especially true about Section 8 that deals with pari-mutuel wagering, which is already legal in specific locations, and a video lottery, which is a growth market for states that offer such games.

The Poarch Band of Creek Indians vigorously oppose Section 8 because it threatens their billion dollar tax-free gambling monopoly. Over the last several years, PCI has spent over two billion (with a B), building or purchasing gambling and entertainment properties using money earned in Alabama. PCI pays no state or federal taxes on the income it takes in from its three casinos in Alabama.
