2010 Legislative Session:
There were several Senate and House Bills introduced amending the Oklahoma Education Lottery Act or otherwise directly affecting the Lottery. Only two of these bills, both House bills, were passed to the Governor by the Legislature, and one of these two bills was vetoed. One bill introduced in the Senate included Lottery-requested language to remove our current profit restriction allowing the Lottery to increase sales and profits to education. This bill never received a hearing.
Two lottery-related bills passed by the 2010 Legislature:
HB 2333 – requires the Lottery to snag debt owed to the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission from lottery prizes.
HB3161 – restricted lottery advertising to prohibit the use of children and to require that any claims of benefit be substantiated (vetoed by the Governor).
