BILL NUMBER: S648 TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the tax law, in relation to the disposition 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 struggling schools, without a negative impact on the lottery system.
