House Bill 461, Lottery Compliance Act, filed by Representatives Folwell, Hurley, Pierce, and I, passed the House Finance Committee on Thursday. The bill originally had restricted lottery advertisements at university athletic events, and was amended to include only high school events at the request of the Lottery Commission and officials from the Governor's office. The NCAA prohibits such advertising at its events, but leaves it up to the individual institutions for non NCAA events, although it is highly discouraged.

Thank you for your continued involvement by sharing your concerns and questions with me. Expressing your opinion is vital to the conduct of the governmental process.
