Each year North Carolina citizens bet $100 million in the Virginia lottery. Georgia also has a lottery, and South Carolina will soon operate one. With all this money bet elsewhere, lottery proponents argue the state should have its own lottery to keep the money home for things like school funding. Opponents argue that lotteries are immoral and exploit the poor. Polls indicate that if the General Assembly gave voters an opportunity to vote on a lottery referendum, it would pass.
