District 4 Alabama House of Representatives candidate Tom Willis has promised to sponsor legislation that would authorize a lottery “on day one.” His legislation, he says, would allow the people of Alabama to vote for or against a lottery.
“This issue has dominated conversation and controversy in this state for nearly twenty years and it’s time that the people of Alabama had a chance to vote or against an Alabama lottery,” Willis said. “As I have traveled throughout this district I have heard people who are both pro-lottery and anti-lottery tell me that they want this debate to end and to see the lottery on a ballot. I promise that if I am elected, I will file a bill on my first day in office that will allow Alabamians to vote for or against a lottery in this state.”
