(This amendment provides that 100 percent of the lottery proceeds would be distributed to local school divisions for their own use, rather than the 39 percent currently returned directly to local divisions for this purpose. A companion amendment in Item 143 makes up the 61 percent of lottery proceeds currently received by the local divisions as the state share of basic aid payments.)
