Oklahoma education getting an extra $2.8 million from lottery
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma education is getting an extra $2.8 million from the lottery.
The Oklahoma Lottery announced Tuesday that they expect to transfer $2.8 million more than what was appropriated to Oklahoma Education for 2015.
Lottery officials say they contributed more than $60 million for the 2015 fiscal year.
“As in previous years, the Lottery strives to exceed financial expectations and will continue to raise the bar in the effort to provide much needed funding for Oklahoma education,” said Rollo Redburn, Executive Director.
More than $685 million has been contributed to education since November 2005.
“Giving back to Oklahoma Education is very important to not only this agency, but for all of our players as well,” said Redburn.
