Oklahoma Lottery Commission Holds First Meeting Today

Oklahoma LotteryOklahoma Lottery: Oklahoma Lottery Commission Holds First Meeting Today

Oklahoma's Education Lottery Commission holds its first meeting this afternoon at the state Capitol.

The seven-member commission was appointed by Governor Henry on Monday. It will establish the framework for the statewide lottery approved by voters last November.

Henry says he hopes to have scratch-off lottery games by October or November with electronic games beginning about six months after that and Powerball-type games by the fall of 2006. The lottery is expected to produce $150 million for education after it is in full swing.

The governor is expected to speak to the commission at today's meeting.
