HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Governor Robert Bentley signed an executive order creating an advisory council for gaming in the state of Alabama.

The Governor says this is necessary because of the “very complex controversy” of the issue in Alabama.

Bentley says the advisory council will evaluate tax revenue structures for other states as well as compare Alabama state laws to applicable federal laws. 

The advisory council will consist of a representative from the District Attorney’s Association, the Sheriff’s Association, a republican and democrat nominated by the Speaker of the House, and a republican and democrat nominated by the Senate President Pro Tem. Clinton Carter, state finance director, and Huntsville native will also be a part of this committee.
