Misappropriated lottery funds stalls Oklahoma education budget

OK (KSWO)- Lottery money misuse means that Oklahoma lawmakers will have to pay the lottery millions before it begins to set the state’s education budget.

Last month, it was determined that the state budgeted education with $10 million from the lottery. Under law, lottery money may only be used as a sort of bonus on top of education funding; it is not meant to take the place of regular funding.

It is not clear if the misuse of funds was on purpose and they have been given a few months to fix this issue.
