OPINION

There is a viable solution for funding Nevada schools' infrastructure without raising sales and business taxes.  Nevada should get into the Powerball, Mega Millions and other multi-state lottery games.

Ever see people lining up to buy lottery tickets at Gold Ranch, Susanville, Lake Tahoe and other California lottery locations?  They're not there for the popcorn.

Nevadans who purchase California lottery tickets contribute to California schools.  About 10 cents of every super lottery ticket sale is returned to the state, netting about one billion dollars annually for California's public schools.

Support calling a special session of the Nevada Legislature - immediately, and in ample time to get an initiative on our November ballet.  Designate Nevada's portion of the ticket sales direct to Nevada school infrastructure funding.  Nevadans play the lottery; funds will be evergreen.

Forty-four of the United States participate in super lottery games.  Nevadans should receive this type of revenue, rather than contributing to other states' coffers.
