A special North Carolina Senate committee will meet today to hash out the details of the lottery bill sent to them from the House.
Most lawmakers say they want to see a number of changes before they make a decision, which could mean a vote is still weeks away.
The committee will take up the House version of the lottery bill that barely passed earlier this month. That bill calls for a lottery run by a state commission with no advertising allowed.
During the Senate committee's first meeting last week, many legislators made it clear that if the bill passes, it will look much different than the House's version. Some senators said they would rather see a private company run the lottery. Others say they won't go along with a lottery unless it can be promoted through advertising.
The committee's chair says a vote will not happen until sometime in May. If the Senate does pass the bill, it would then go back to the House for another vote.
