Mississippi Lottery


No bill in the Mississippi Legislature Soley deals with a state lottery, but there are multiple ways one could come out of the legislative session.
Three bills have been amended to add a state lottery two dealing with gambling in one form or another, and the last was originally a mental health bill.
And while some lawmakers are hopeful a state lottery could come to fruition, House Speaker Philip Gunn opposes the game of chance and the proposals could die without ever coming up for debate.
Gunn must determine whether the lottery amendments are relevant to the bills, as required under house rules
All three bills face a Thursday deadline.
