Gov. Nathan Deal today unveiled a new law enforcement initiative to crack down on gambling parlors currently proliferating throughout Georgia.
“Today, we are coming together to send a clear message to the illegal gaming industry, and to concerned communities throughout Georgia: Our state law prohibits gambling,” Deal said in a news release.
“The code is black and white on this issue,” the governor added. “Though some have sought to further their own interests by spreading the impression that the thwarting of these laws would be winked at, we are here to reassure Georgians that we will prosecute anyone skirting the law in this area.”
