Ga. lawmakers weigh gambling
By Riley Bunch firstname.lastname@example.org
ATLANTA — Lawmakers are weighing the pros and cons of legalized gambling, but ultimately, it’s up to voters to decide.
A constitutional amendment could bring casinos, horse racing and sports betting to Georgia. Both House and Senate lawmakers are hoping to break down what this would mean for the peach state.
Georgia has been slow, way behind much of the rest of the country, in legalizing any form of gambling. It wasn't until 1992 that voters finally approved a lottery. Revenue from the lottery has historically gone toward education funding.
