The sponsor of a revised bill to legalize and tax electronic bingo in Alabama says he's uncertain when he will try to bring it up for debate in the state Senate.

The sponsor, Democratic Sen. Roger Bedford of Russellville, and other lawmakers returned to Montgomery Tuesday after a one-week spring break.

Bedford said he didn't plan to bring up the bill Tuesday because he's still showing it to his colleagues.

Bedford has trimmed the bill from 43 pages to eight pages since it stalled earlier in the legislative session.

The bill no longer specifies where electronic bingo casinos would be located. That would be up to the legislature to decide later.
