A proposal by some Republican lawmakers to allow a statewide vote on a lottery is scheduled for discussion in a public hearing on Wednesday.
The Economic Development and Tourism Committee in the House of Representatives plans to hold the hearing at 1 p.m. in room 410 at the State House.
The bill, by Rep. Alan Harper, R-Northport, does not specify how lottery proceeds would be used if the voters approved the constitutional amendment.
The Legislature would have to decide that later.
Sen. Jim McClendon, R-Springville, is sponsoring an identical bill in the Senate.
Also on Wednesday, the Senate Education Committee is scheduled to consider a bill that would repeal use of the Common Core education standards in public schools.
The Legislature returns Tuesday for the second week of the session.
