But There

you are wrong.

Outgoing Senator Boseman has proposed the parlors be managed by the Education Lottery Commission. She notes an estimated $540,000,000 would flow into the state coffers annually.

Maybe that's how they plan to repay the Education Lottery Fund for all the money borrowed by the Easley and Perdue administrations.

But they may need to check the math. No doubt this will require the Lottery Commission to double staff with bloated salaries and a whole fleet of new state vehicles required. No doubt, they'll need a Seperate Director at $240,000 a year to oversee this new division.

So not to worry, your state government is already ahead of the game in looking for new taxes to fund an increasing state deficit and debt.

Meanwhile, the City can continue with its plan to charge fees. Fees are not taxes even though they have the same impact.
