Yeah, the State of NC wants their State ran Lottery numbers to go up. Sweepstakes has taken away from them. The part that most do not understand is that most of the Sweepstakes Parlors are a true sweepstakes under a Finite system. There is a predetermined outcome. The real fact is one has BETTER ODDS at winning a lot of cash in a Sweepstakes Parlor versus playing the States Lottery and they don't want the competition.
The Senates logic is atrocious when the State needs Dollars to balance the budget. There will be over 10,000 individuals out of work and nearly 1000 rental units not being leased. Most of the renters possibly did not get an exemption clause in their lease and that will cause the proprietor to go under financially because of the sweepstakes ban; possibly losing everything in the process.
Please remember too that there are schools being closed, teachers losing their jobs, libraries are closing, state workers being laid off and much more that this economy as caused. The few folks that may get addicted will be very little to what a half billion dollars will do to help the majority.
