BILL NUMBER:S285

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the tax law and the state finance law, in relation to
prohibiting the use of lottery funds for any purpose other than
education

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Prohibits use of lottery funds for any purpose other than education
and prohibits co-mingling with funds for other purposes.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Amends section 1612 of Tax Law to add new subdivision (h).
Provides that no revenues collected pursuant to this article shall be
used for any purpose other than providing aid to all school children
and shall not be co-mingled with funds designated for any other
purpose.

Section 2: Amends section 92-c (3) of the Finance Law. Requires that
the moneys in such fund shall be appropriated or transferred only for
the repayment of the expenditures incurred in the operation of the
state lottery provided that no moneys in such fund shall be
appropriated or transferred for any purpose other than aid to school
children and shall not be co-mingled with funds designated for any
other purpose.

EXISTING LAW:
None.

JUSTIFICATION:
The lottery lockbox would ensure that lottery money is used for
education, as it was meant to be. The public wants the assurance that
lottery money that is coming for education is not going to be
siphoned off for other things.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: S.3148 - Referred to Racing, Gaming and Wagering/A.4705 -
Held for Consideration in Ways and Means

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.
