State auditor’s report on California lottery and education
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A new audit of the State Lottery Commission shows it has not provided the required funding toward education.
A mandate in the creation of the California State Lottery says that money raised from the lottery would go to the state’s schools.
According to the auditor’s report, the lottery is to increase funding in proportion to increase in revenue, which means that the more money the lottery makes, the more it’s supposed to pay out to the state for education.
The report found that the lottery didn’t pay the $36 million it was supposed to.
Judge Jan Goldsmith, former San Diego City Attorney, was in studio to discuss.
