LOTTERY TRANSFERS $22 MILLION TO EDUCATION

The Missouri Lottery today sent $22 million to public education. The December transfer of $22,135,726 brings the total sent to education during fiscal year 2001 to more than $80 million. Since lottery sales began almost 15 years ago, the lottery has provided the state, including education, with more than $1.5 billion. Approximately 30 cents of every dollar spent playing the Lottery goes to education. The Missouri Lottery’s contribution to public education is about 3 percent of education’s total annual funding. Each year, the Legislature appropriates Lottery proceeds to various education programs.
