Rep. Holmes Plans to Propose Lottery

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – Representative Alvin Holmes says he plans to introduce a lottery bill in the 2005 regular legislative session. Holmes says his proposal would give half of lottery proceeds to the state's education trust fund, with the other half going to the general fund budget. He says he challenges lottery opponents to come up with a better way to raise money for the state.
