At an anti-gambling news conference in Montgomery, State Representative Jay Love calls the bingo bill going before the House today the "worst piece of legislation he's ever seen and it will only make a handful of people rich".
He also says he's going to "educate everyone and let them know we cannot have this. Casinos will be opened all across the state... it will open up full blown casinos", according to Representative Love.
Love says says "if you want to just talk about jobs here, we could legalize prostitution and drugs. We need to be advocates for good public policy".
News 4 has two reporters covering the story in Montgomery today and will have live reports at 5pm and 6pm on News 4.
