Proceeds would be split between local governments and public schools. CHEYENNE -- Both houses of the Wyoming Legislature have voted to concur on a compromise over a bill that would authorize creation of a state lottery. The bill now heads to Gov. Matt Mead. The House and the Senate voted Tuesday to approve a conference committee resolution that called for the first $6 million in proceeds to go to local governments. Any proceeds over that amount would go to a public school foundation fund. The House and Senate originally had disagreed over how to spend lottery proceeds. The Senate originally called for putting the money into a fund that supports schools while the House called for distributing proceeds to local governments.
