Head of gambling task force says he expects A-G to take over

Montgomery, AL – - The commander of the governor's task force
on illegal gambling says he expects Alabama attorney general Troy
King will announce he is taking over the task force at a Monday
afternoon news conference.
If he does, Commander John Tyson said an electronic bingo case
from Lowndes County now pending at the State Supreme Court will
allow him to immediately challenge King's decision.
Circuit Judge Robert Vance of Birmingham had given King until
Monday to say if he would use his authority as attorney general to
stop or approve of the task force's actions against the casino at
White Hall in Lowndes County.
The Alabama Supreme Court delayed that deadline in an order
Friday.
