MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A late Wednesday meeting to discuss the
fate of the state's controversial governor's gambling task force
has yielded no immediate decision.
Alabama's governor and attorney general have met privately for
about 90 minutes to discuss the future of the task force.
Attorney General Troy King emerged from the Wednesday meeting to
announce he had made no decision on whether to take over the task
force and end its efforts to shutter electronic bingo operations.
A judge in Birmingham ruled Monday that King can exercise
authority over the task force.
King says he and the governor had a calm, productive meeting and
bother have a lot to think about in the next few days.
