McCrory, NC lawmakers considering lottery changes

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The North Carolina Education Lottery could soon go by another name.

Members of the General Assembly and Governor Pat McCrory are interested in scaling back how much the lottery advertises.
     
McCrory argued the lottery commission had large administrative costs and that the lottery was, "frankly annoying."
     
He said he wanted to earmark more money toward school technology.
     
A bill is scheduled for House debate this week that would delete the name "education" from the lottery and tweak advertising.
     
Lottery supporters say the changes could decrease ticket sales and net proceeds for education initiatives.
