Missouri Lottery

Governor revamps Missouri Lottery Commission

September 19, 2014, 8:21 am ET

Gov. Jay Nixon replaced most of the members of the Missouri Lottery Commission on Thursday as he released a report recommending the agency review its policies on prizes and advertising in a quest to route more money to education.

The shake-up in oversight at the Missouri Lottery comes after it posted record sales during the past budget year yet transferred less money to education than it had in the previous year.

Nixon in July had directed his state budget office to review the lottery's operations. That resulted in a series of recommendations Thursday that the lottery revise its contracting procedures to save money and re-examine whether it is devoting too much of its proceeds to prizes and advertising.
