BILL NUMBER:S2870

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to the disposi-
tion of revenue from the lottery prize account

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill decreases, by five percent, the amount
of money allocated for lottery prizes; the bill increases, by five
percent, the amount of money allocated to education. These changes apply
to the "Daily Numbers Game," "Win 4," "Pick 10," "Take 5" and "Lotto"
games.

JUSTIFICATION: State aid to education funding has been severely
restricted over the past few years. A minor change in the disposition of
revenue from the lottery prize account will increase state aid to strug-
gling schools, without a negative impact on the lottery system.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first of October next
succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law.
