Why Is The State Auditing The Georgia Lottery?

Jan 9, 2017

The Georgia Lottery has recently come under audit by the state government. News broke last week that the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts was questioning the Georgia Lottery Corporation’s spending practices.


They claim the Georgia Lottery has not been providing enough funding to state education programs, which it is required to do by law, and was the primary reason given for having a lottery. We are joined by Atlanta Journal-Constitution government reporter James Salzer to discuss this.
