Michigan Lottery May Go Private

Michigan may privatize its lottery to help deal with the state's 800 million dollar budget deficit.

The proposal includes an upfront payment of two-billion dollars but critics say it is a one-time fix.

Schools that get millions of dollars from lottery sales would be left in the lurch.

Governor Granholm is expected to unveil her plan for dealing with Michigan’s budget problems in her state of the state address next month.

Recently, Indiana governor Mitch Daniels pushed for privatizing the Hoosier lottery.
