First lottery winner

Posted By on Tue, Jun 9, 2009 at 5:49 AM

Not a scratch-off ticket has been sold, but the Arkansas Lottery will have its first jackpot winner today. A legislative committee will routinely approve the $324,000 salary for Ernie Passailaigue, who'll direct the venture. This will be a pay increase of more than $100,000 over his current pay for running the South Carolina lottery.

Brummett notes today that, so far, things have been running in Lt. Gov. Bill Halter's direction on lottery setup, despite resentment and shunning by legislators.
