Alabama leaders push for state lottery

ALABAMA  --  An Alabama House Democratic leader is pushing for a state lottery.

House Minority Leader Craig Ford of Gadsden is calling for the legislature to use its election-year session to approve a state lottery.
He says a lottery could create as much as $250 million dollars annually for schools.
He says many Alabamians are playing lotteries in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, and he wants to keep their money at home.
But the lottery issue has lost time after time.
