I have wondered the same thing about where all the money goes. It's the same in most states that have lotteries.

All we hear is that it is "for the children". The same old BS in every state.

How stupid do they think the general public is.
Well, looking at the number of people who complain about the lack of funds available it must be most people.

I think you will find their explanation is the unexpected "High Cost of Administration".

It is out and out theft. The officials see all that money coming in and go wild.

I call it misappropriation of funds if so much money actually disappears.

It was set up for college scholarships, not the school buses. I am not saying that the monies shouldn't be spread out through education. But i believe I heard Sen I forgot his name that was put in charge of the lotto when it came out, say that it couldnt be used for buses.
