Lottery commission to meet UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, May 5, 2009 at 10:25 AM

Lottery commissioners will meet today at 1:00, at the University of Arkansas Systems board room, 2404 North University Avenue in Little Rock.  The meeting is open to the public.  It's likely that the meeting will be largely organizational.  As we reported on Friday, there is no set agenda.  Commissioners will likely elect a chairman and set the agenda for the next meeting, which some expect will take place in about one month. 

UPDATE: Max checks in, from Turkey, with a comment on this morning's news: Coverage of legislative oversight committee in today's Democrat Gazette makes it sure sound like at least some legislators -- Johnny Key a praiseworthy exception -- are determined to call the shots on the so-called independent commission.

We'll have more from the meeting later today.
