HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Alabama Senate Pro-Tem Del Marsh will discuss new details with his gambling bill on Tuesday.

Marsh plans to hold a news conference in Montgomery.

Meanwhile, Governor Bentley insists gambling won't provide enough money to keep cuts from coming to law enforcement and other state agencies.

We caught up with Attorney General Luther Strange in Huntsville Monday evening, who says some solution must be found soon - but not if it means cuts to public safety officials.

"We're hopeful that the governor and the legislature will figure out a way to balance the budget, but not do it to the expense of law enforcement," Strange said.

Strange says he's not in favor of raising taxes or gambling as a solution to the budget problem.
