STATE OPERATED LOTTERIES. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Enables the Legislature to authorize lotteries, provided they are operated by the State. Requires the net proceeds from any lottery to be apportioned 45% to the cities and counties by population, 45% to school districts and community college districts, and 10% to the State General Fund. Financial impact: Would produce indeterminable, though probably significant, state and local revenues, the magnitude of which would depend on lottery characteristics. State administrative costs, including promotional costs, would be less than revenues.
