Tennessee Lottery oversight meeting delayed

Tennessee LotteryTennessee Lottery: Tennessee Lottery oversight meeting delayed

Rating:

Update (Nov. 9, 2007, 11:18 am): See below for rescheduled date and time.

The Joint Lottery Oversight Committee in Tennessee, which was scheduled to meet this month to discuss the many problems recently plaguing the Tennessee Lottery, has been delayed.

The meeting was originally scheduled for November 26th.

According to a note sent by a co-chair's staff member, the delay is due to the fact that two ongoing audits have not yet been completed.  Both audits will be discussed at the upcoming meeting.

One of the ongoing audits is being conducted by KPMG, and is costing Tennessee taxpayers at least $90,000.  It was ordered by the Tennessee Lottery, but does not examine any of the multitude of errors and glitches that befell the Tennessee Lottery ever since they switched to computerized drawings in July.

When Tennessee legislators discovered that the lottery did not order an investigation of the many errors that took place, lawmakers took matters into their own hands and ordered their own separate audit, which covers the errors and glitches.

The oversight committee, comprised of Tennessee state Representatives and Senators, will discuss the findings of the two audits.

A rescheduled date for the oversight committee meeting has not yet been set.

Update: New meeting date set

The Joint Lottery Oversight Committee meeting has been re-scheduled for Monday, December 10, according to a memo released by a staffer for Co-Chair Bill Ketron.

The meeting will take between 1:00 and 4:00 pm in the Nashville legislative office.

      Missouri is not that far away from you.  Take Highway 51 north to Dyersburg.  Take the I55-exit to Missouri.  There is a lotto site just two miles once you get over the River.

       

      Enjoy the ride.

            Great metaphor, Jade!  Sun Smiley   

            Also bet their legal team instructed them to delay, delay, delay, outta sight outta mind.  Counting on players forgetting about being bulldozed flat ..... then the lottery can loads of tickets for Holiday stocking stuffers and make themselves superheros to politicians.  It's all about the children isn't it???

            Good luck to everyone!

              ,it'll be interesting to see how this all ends.unfortunately i think it already has.they'll go through the motions.they'll delay it over and over until memories are faded.then next thing you know it'll slip away and won't anyone notice.i think the writing is on the wall.the state is simply not going to swallow its pride and admit to all kinds of serious wrongdoings because its embarrasing for quite a lot of people.the bigwigs at the top will make sure the threat is detoured on this thing and it quietly goes away.this RNG is here to stay unfortunately.

                you are right LottoMike...  People are not going to wait it out.  They are going to continue to keep playing ...

                 

                It is like they are there to either get a screwing or to accidently win..

                  Unfortunately negative, defeatist thinking is precisely what they want to hear. 

                  Bet they've been reading these posts and high fived one another.

                  Good luck to everyone!

                    I was in store this afternoon educating those pick 3 players.

                    One of our regulars who was dropping $50 or more per day on both draws was in there.  He, too, was convincing others that they might as well save their money and go to GA or KY and play multiple draws for they would have a better chance.

                    I have printed the news about the lottery and made copies to pass out.

                    I can only do so much, but one thing for sure, this little town will soon know to stay away from TN lottery on pick3, pick 4, and lotto 5. 

                    They can high five as much as they want,  We AREN't fools here in Ardmore.  They will see the low sales from this area.

                    Ardmore takes on a lot of the AL players.. They too are being educated to the fullest.  There are some friend of mine who work the other stores in Ardmore.  They , too are educating people.

                    Now if the other cities in the state would stand up and say, "Hey we aren't fools!" but then again,  some are.

                      I wish more of the stores in TN would do this. There are a lot of people who have no idea of what is going on with the lottery because they are not regular players. They just here about some friend of a friend who won such and such amount of money on the lottery and just want to try their luck. The thing is that friend of a friend who had won that money isn't playing the lottery like they used to because they know what has happened with it. I still go to the store to play my $2.00 Powerball play and see people who have never played before trying to figure out how to fill out the cards for Cash 3 and Cash 4. They will ask the clerk and he/she will look to me, knowing I know how to do it because I played regularly, and I will tell them how to do it then tell them that I used to play and win a lot but stopped back in July when they switched from balls to a computer. Then I tell them about a site where they can play online. I tell them that I wouldn't be giving the state of TN anymore of my lottery money on games that I helped get here but had no decision on changes made to it. I think all that just goes in one ear and right out the other until I get to the payouts of playing online. The payouts always catches their attention.

                      I hope when the new politicians get in office they change the online gambling laws that were attached to the security bill because that was the only way they would have passed it. If they could get taxes off of the winnings that would be fine with me. I personally think all the government is about is money and I think they would make more money taxing lottery winnings then going after online gambling sites and those who transfer money to them.

                      I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!
