Atwater admits: Gambling will be a 'very hard lift'

Senate President Jeff Atwater tonight all but conceded the gambling bills could be abandoned this legislative session.

"In the end, the state could press on without closure at this moment,'' he said at a press availability tonight.

"I thought this would be the most difficult conference committee to find its common ground,'' Atwater said. "I have really thought from the outset this was going to be a very tough challenge to come together and make this work....I think it is a reality that it is going to be a very very hard lift.''
