Alice Clark, a representative of the Democratic Party,said at the legislative session that this year the Mississippi has a better chance of legalizing the lottery in the state. According to the politician, the legal lottery will help improve the education system.
Clarke said that the revenue from the litter will finance the scholarship program of the colleges, as happens in other states. However, Governor Phil Bryant is against this.
Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves believes thatthe lottery does not carry an important economic component for the state. He compares the lotus sector with the casino: "The real economic effect can be brought by the casino. Gambling establishments will give hundreds of new jobs and millions of investments from hotels, restaurants and shops. Lotteries do not have such advantages, "the politician stressed.
Recall: in Mississippi, a casino may appear outside the regulated territory.
