Alabama Policy Institute (API) President Stephanie Smith said that gambling will be one of the two biggest issues confronting the Alabama Legislature in 2024.
She suggested that a forthcoming gambling commission set up by the state could create issues similar to those currently plaguing the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission (AMCC). As a legal framework for businesses within the industry, authorized by the Alabama Legislature, a state commission on gambling would share features inherent to a regulatory framework.
Smith made that point last week on Rightside Radio hosted by former State Senator Phil Williams. Williams asked Smith what the big issues would be in 2024.
