Schools/Lottery

Tom -
In our discussions over transferring monies from the lottery fund to the general fund we might be missing a more salient point.
It's called bang for the buck.
In our current legislation (NCGS 18) the Lottery proceeds are spread among the 100 counties. I have to ask - why?
Not all counties experience growth or have need for continued construction of schools. Why not go towards higher education? Lets put 100% of lottery funds toward reducing the cost for IN STATE students (with a residency requirement of say 5 years or more) at state run community colleges and universities?
