Walker County authorities to discuss bingo

WALKER COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - A hearing takes place Tuesday over electronic bingo machines in Walker County.
Jefferson County Judge Robert Vance is expected to tackle the issue of whether the machines are covered in a constitutional amendment approved in the early 1990's allowing traditional paper-card bingo.

Both Walker County's sheriff and district attorney sued in 2007 seeking a judge's ruling on the legality of electronic bingo for charities.
Walker County has about 18 bingo halls.
