(Wyo)- New Law Calls For Wyo. Lottery, Joint Multi-State Game Such As Powerball

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 07/01/2013 10:39 AM
     CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Another new law taking effect in Wyoming calls for the state to establish a lottery or a joint multi-state game such as Powerball.
     The first step will be for Gov. Matt Mead to appoint a nine-member board that will oversee the quasi-governmental corporation that will run the lottery.
     The lottery should be up and running in about a year. Lottery proponents estimated during the last legislative session that a lottery would bring in about $25 million a year to Wyoming and net the state about $6 million annually. Under the new law, the first $6 million will go to local governments and proceeds above that will support public schools.
