EDUCATION TO RECEIVE $13.7 MILLION FROM LOTTERY

The Missouri Lottery today sent $13.7 million to the Lottery Proceeds Fund to be used for public education programs. The May transfer of $13,766,657 brings the total sent to education during fiscal year 2001 to more than $145 million. The Missouri Lottery has provided the state, including education, with more than $1.6 billion, since it began 15 years ago. 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. For a complete list of education programs funded in fiscal year 2001, visit the Lottery’s Web site at www.molottery.com.
