Companies Propose More Than Two Billion Dollars to Acquire Indiana Lottery

Indiana's Governor says at least two companies are willing to pay more than 2 billion dollars up front to operate the Hoosier lottery.

Governor Daniels proposed in December to lease the lotto for a billion dollars up front, and 200 million each year after that.

Now he says two companies are willing to double that up front cost, but the democrat controlled house is still against the plan.

The senate already approved a plan allowing a lease if the proceeds go towards scholarship programs.
