Tennessee LotteryTennessee Lottery: Board meets today, to hear Georgia proposal

The Tennessee Lottery Corporation Board is expected to hear a proposal Monday from Georgia officials about a potential deal between the state games.

The board's second meeting begins at one p-m (Central).

The proposal involves pooling resources and expertise to keep down costs associated with the Tennessee and Georgia lotteries.

On another matter, the lottery corporation will now hire it's own attorney.

Governor Bredesen initially arranged for a Nashville law firm to handle the lottery's legal business. He quickly rescinded the action when he realized it could put the lottery's reputation in jeopardy.

The lottery's integrity is important because of Tennessee's troubled history of gambling regulation.

An FBI investigation of bingo operations a decade ago led to dozens of convictions and the suicide of a top state official.

Is that the TN Lottery logo? (I'd think they'd throw in a gee-tar!)

    Stop picking at my state...I will be glad if the lottery is just run honest...I don't want someone trying to profit at the expense of others...I like Rebecca's comments..she is selling .."INTEGRITY"  which is another word for ..honesty...

    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

    You never know when you will get another hit.

      Sorry-I thought the logo was too "generic".

      Then again-don't you use a "pick" for a guitar?

        I'm sure they'll come up with some better branding as things get closer.  Just wait 'til the ad agency starts to consume their big contract!
