Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she supports Del Marsh gambling bill ‘so far’ Mike Cason, al.com · February 22, 2021 at 10:45 pm Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has said it’s important that any proposal to expand gambling in Alabama be presented in a way that’s clear to voters and that she’ll let people know if she believes that’s not happening. Speaking briefly to reporters this morning after a ceremony to proclaim today as Supermarket Employees Day, Ivey answered questions about Sen. Del Marsh’s proposed constitutional amendment for a lottery and five casinos. Marsh introduced the bill on Feb. 11. The Senate discussed it that day and is expected to resume debate and possibly vote on the bill Tuesday. “So far, from what you can tell, do you think it has been a transparent process?” a reporter asked the governor. “So far. We’ll keep watching.” Ivey said. “I think Senator Marsh will be addressing that more tomorrow when they come into session.” Ivey was asked whether she supports a lottery and five casinos. “So far as I know, yes,” the governor said.
