Wyoming House votes not to concur on lottery bill

Posted:

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) _ The Wyoming House on Monday voted not to concur with the Senate on a bill that would allow a lottery and multi-state games such as Powerball in the state.
 
    The House voted 34-25 not to agree with an amendment the Senate made last week in how the proceeds of the lottery would be used. The bill now must head to a conference committee to see if the difference can be resolved.
 
    The Senators changed the bill to specify that any proceeds outside of the expenses and prizes will go to support the state school system, which is already among the best funded in the nation.
 
    The House version of the bill had specified that proceeds would be distributed among local governments in the state.
