Monday. Various news outlets released reports that Speaker of the House Mac McCutcheon (R – Monrovia) anticipates that the Alabama Legislature will likely deal with lottery legislation in the upcoming 2019 regular session.

Later that day, Speaker McCutcheon released a statement clarifying his position, because some stories have taken the comments he originally made to television station WHNT out of context.

“A reporter from station WHNT in Huntsville asked me last week to comment about the efforts that surrounding states are undertaking to implement lotteries, sports betting, and other forms of gambling,” said Speaker McCutcheon. “I said the Legislature will likely see a lottery bill introduced in the first session of the quadrennium, but that response was based on a general feeling and no concrete knowledge on my part.”
