Alabama's Governor's Task Force on Illegal gambling

January 03, 2009

Alabama's governor has taken steps for forming a gaming task force despite legal objections from his attorney general.

The latest move came after Alabama governor Bob Riley and his AG, Troy King, had a difference of opinion over Alabama's gaming laws.

The governor stated to the media that King believes there are loopholes that permit electronic gaming machines in certain locations, but that as governor he believes that many of these are illegal slot machines.

"I believe what is going on in many of these halls all over the state is illegal," Riley stated at a news conference earlier this week when announcing his new sans-AG task force.

The Attorney General for the state of Alabama stated that he and the governor are both opponents of gaming, yet even governors have to abide by state law on gaming.

"We are constrained not by how I would like the law to be, but by how the law is," King stated to the media.

Riley put together a special task force to investigate gaming operations statewide and picked a long standing anti-gaming prosecutor to lead it.

Riley bypassed state Attorney General King to create the Governor's Task Force on Illegal gambling, which will be lead by David Barber, the former Jefferson County District Attorney.

King reminded Alabama residents that his office is responsible for shutting down over 30 illegal gaming facilities without the need of the governor's office assistance.

"Fighting illegal gaming is expensive and time-consuming. I wish all these resources becoming available now had been available earlier," King stated.

Several Alabama legislators have brought forward the idea of expanding gaming and placing state taxes due to economic pressure on state finances, yet Riley stated he will oppose that when the Legislature meets on Feb. 3rd.

During his 6 years of serving as governor, Riley has appointed many task forces to study different issues and recommend solutions, Yet this is a new approach for him, creating a task force to be headed by a prosecutor who is backed up by the Alabama Bureau of Investigation and the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.

Riley stated Barber retains legal authority as a "supernumerary" district attorney who can be called back into service by the governor. He stated Barber will have statewide authority and can bring civil or criminal actions.

Barber stated he will work with local district attorneys and sheriffs, several of them already have court cases pending over the legal standings of bingo operations within their own counties.

Good Luck
