Public Gaming's Political News

Pat Dye, former Auburn head football coach and president of the Alabama Jobs Foundation said the results of the poll confirm what he has heard around the state for years. "They are ready to vote on this issue once and for all," Dye said in a statement. "The voters are clear about what they support: an education lottery and gaming that brings jobs, revenue and economic development to our state." The results of the poll also showed that 77 percent of Alabamians support the Del Marsh gaming/education lottery plan, over the plan offered by the Creek Indians. The Poarch Creeks in April offered to pay the state of Alabama $250 million to close the budget deficit, in exchange for exclusive gaming rights. "The voters of Alabama are speaking as loud and clear as they can on this issue," said Alabama State Senate Pro-Tem Del Marsh, R-Anniston. "They demand the right to vote on this issue. They support my lottery and gaming constitutional amendment by large numbers. And just as important, they do not support raising taxes, period." The study predicts an education lottery would generate $332 million annually, while casino gambling – which allows Class III gaming like table games and slot machines – would generate an additional $74 million.
