NC lottery says it can't generate all House seeks

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - The North Carolina Education Lottery says it can generate barely half the extra profits the House wants toward its government budget to help fund teacher pay raises next year if advertising changes within it become law.
The News & Observer reported Saturday ( ) on a fiscal memo it obtained in which the lottery told General Assembly staffers it can provide $59 million more - not the $106 million in the House budget approved Friday.
The newspaper says documents show the House's projection didn't take into account proposed restrictions on lottery advertising as the cap on ad spending increases.
A lottery spokesman said Saturday the agency has no objection releasing the information, but Speaker Thom Tillis' office first wants the Attorney General's Office to determine whether the information is considered confidential.
