Your chance to vote on allowing a lottery in Alabama cleared another hurdle at the state House.

The Economic Development and Tourism committee passed the lottery bill with two amendments.

One would direct 75 percent of lottery revenues to the general fund and 25 percent to the education trust fund.

The other amendment would direct 0.25 percent of revenue to a program to help compulsive gamblers.

The House could consider the bill next week.
