(Wyo.)-Wyoming Lawmakers Plan To Propose Lottery Bill

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 12/05/2012 06:41 AM
      CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Some Wyoming legislators are suggesting bringing Powerball to the state.
 
    A group of lawmakers plans to draft a lottery bill that would bring games like Powerball to the state and earmark proceeds for highway maintenance. Legislators have tried to pass lottery bills before with no luck.
 
     Legislators already have proposed boosting the fuel tax and motor vehicle registration fees for highway maintenance. Supporters of the lottery bill say their legislation could provide enough money for highways that a fuel tax hike might not be needed.
 
     While Wyoming has no lottery system, Colorado to the south does. That has helped boost lottery sales at Colorado stores near the Wyoming border.
