Late-session bills, Baldwin’s growth, COVID’s ripple: Down in Alabama


From today’s Down in Alabama podcast:

Here’s hoping you didn’t bet on gambling.

At least not for Alabama’s three-bill lottery/casino/sports gaming package to make it through the state House of Representatives on the next-to-last day of the session.

Because it didn’t even come to a vote.

We’ll tell you a little about what did go down on Goat Hill Thursday on today’s news briefing.

We’ll also talk about the growing county that’s now more populated than Montgomery, and how COVID-19 ripple effects are leaving limbs stacked on the side of the road.
