ONLY ON 8: Action 8 political analyst Steve Flowers has expert insights on the prospects of gambling and school choice bills up for debate in the Alabama Legislature.

The gambling bills have passed the House of Representatives and are now in the Senate. If they win a 3/5 majority, they will be on the ballot in November to give Alabama voters the final say. The bills would create a state lottery, allow sports betting both on-site and online and allow up to 10 casinos.

The school choice proposal would establish accounts through which parents can use their tax dollars where they see fit, including for private or parochial schools and homeschooling.

Watch the video above to see if Steve Flowers thinks the bills will win approval from lawmakers.
