"D.  The total costs for the operation and administration of the state lottery, pursuant to § 58.1-4022, Code of Virginia, shall not include the costs of advertising, sponsorships, and extra information beyond that required to inform the public about the value of any prizes available from participation in the lottery.  The nongeneral fund dollars used to support these advertising and information services costs shall be included in the Lottery Proceeds Fund, established pursuant to Article X, Section 7-A, Constitution of Virginia, for the support of public education."

(This amendment would eliminate the State Lottery Department's funding for advertising, sponsorships, and other forms of extra information, and transfer that sum to support K-12 education expenses through the Lottery Proceeds Fund.)
