Assemblyman Munford proposes adding lottery action

Harvey Munford, a Nevada Assemblyman serving his last term of office, is making the introduction of an online lottery his last hurrah, submitting a proposal that this form of gambling be added to the list of games approved by the legislature for interstate agreements.
Local media reports reveal that the proposal has been introduced in the state Legislative Operations and Elections Committee despite a traditional resistance by lawmakers to lottery proposals, many of which have been made and rejected over the past 40 years.
Munford has little to lose as he is departing the legislature after reaching the maximum length of service an Assemblyman can give by law.
He is promoting his proposal by claiming that lottery activity will raise state revenues for improvements in education and old age care without the need to raise taxes.
The indications so far are that his proposal is unpopular with the land gambling industry, and will almost certainly fall afoul of Las Vegas Sands' billionaire owner Sheldon Adelson.
Nevada is one of only six US states that does not offer state lottery activity.
