Lawmakers are expected to debate whether or not to allow casinos in the state during the legislative session next month.

According to the Associated Press, at least 20 lobbyists are registered on behalf of three gambling organizations.

The conservative “Faith and Freedom coalition” is sending mailers to voters in multiple legislative districts.

The Georgia Legislative session starts January 11, 2016.
