Lottery oversight

Posted By on Tue, Apr 14, 2009 at 10:37 AM

House Speaker Robbie Wills has appointed his members of the legislative oversight committee that will tell the lottery commission what to do "ensure accountability and transparency in the set-up and operation of the state lottery."

Did Wills appoint himself in the six-person contingent? Yep. But I think he'd indicated that he would all along.

Still to come are Senate President Pro Tem Bob Johnson's picks.

UPDATE: You'll find Johnson's picks, not including himself, here.
