A bill calling for a vote on blocking electronic bingo in Houston County is making its way through the state legislature.
Tuesday, the measure sponsored by Senator Harri Anne Smith of Slocomb was sent to the Senate Tourism Committee.
That committee is supposed to meet Wednesday, but Senator Smith's bill is not scheduled to be discussed.
The measure calls for a public referendum on banning electronic bingo in Houston County, allowing bingo to be operated only by non-profit organizations and ear-marking all profits for charity.
A companion measure introduced by Representative Benjamin Lewis of Dothan is still awaiting action in a house committee.
