(MONTGOMERY)-- Governor Bentley today issued Executive Order Number 1 dissolving the Governor’s Task Force on Illegal Gambling.
This action follows the plan that Governor Bentley and Attorney General Strange previously announced.
The Governor’s Task Force is no longer necessary because Attorney General Strange, in conjunction with other executive branch officials, will enforce Alabama’s gambling laws as they are written and in strict accordance with the decisions of the Alabama Supreme Court.
As of today, Governor Bentley has transferred all pending Task Force cases to the Attorney General’s Office.
These cases will continue without interruption, under the control and direction of Attorney General Strange.
