The gambling bill is still on track.

That was the word Sunday from several interested parties and state lawmakers who have been working on the bill. A “minor blip,” as one lawmaker put it, caused a stir late Friday and sparked a number of rumors at Saturday’s meeting of state Republicans, but the issue appears to be mostly ironed out and everyone, if not on the same page, at least in the same chapter.

“Some things happened that shouldn’t have happened and it caused a problem,” said Arthur Mothershed, the executive vice president for business development and government relations with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.
