Missouri Lawmakers Want Governor To Play Lottery; Win Mountains Of Cash!

Breaking news from the AP:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Some Missouri lawmakers want the governor to play the lottery in hopes both he and the state will win big.

The House Tax Reform Committee scheduled a hearing Wednesday on a bill that pokes fun at Gov. Jay Nixon’s proposed budget.

The measure would require Nixon to buy a $2 lottery ticket each week from his personal paycheck until he wins enough to make up a $300 million budget shortfall.

Nixon’s proposed 2011 budget assumes Missouri will get about $300 million if Congress extends the federal stimulus payments to states for an additional six months.

Frequent bus riders will recall this stop the bus made yesterday:
Lucky! Lucky! Lucky! Maybe The State Ought To Start Playing The Lottery To Reduce The Deficit?

A Bus Driver's tip of the hat to all our Jefferson City readers! Thanks for riding!
