Alabama could move closer to having a state lottery in 2021.
A state representative from Birmingham pre-filed a lottery bill.
Democrat Rep. John Rogers’ bill would set the Alabama lottery to fund both education and general fund projects.
The proposal would split the money three ways, with 40% going to the education budget, another 40% to the general fund budget and the final 20% would be set aside for the corrections department.
A Republican state senator from East Alabama has also said he'll introduce a lottery bill in the session that starts on Feb. 2.
