Executive Council Meeting Report
Meeting March 21, 2018
The NH State Lottery Councilor Wheeler hosted the Council breakfast at the New Hampshire State Lottery where we received a presentation by Lottery director, Charles McIntyre.
New Hampshire is tenth in the nation per capita in lottery revenues at $230/person/year. Massachusetts is first at $850/person/year. With keno sales, Mr. McIntyre is intent on increasing our per capita spending on lottery. He does not foresee a problem with increasing keno sales and did not understand why anyone objected to the plan to fund kindergarten with keno proceeds. Indeed, Mr. McIntyre was surprised that some towns and cities declined to authorize keno and the Lottery plans to go after these communities again next year.
