Lottery Money

A Montrose woman is working on wording for a ballot measure to better fund education.  Phyllis Alleman tells the Montrose Daily Press she wants voters to approve a plan to split lottery funds into three pots. Right now, $35 million goes to Great Outdoors Colorado, with anything above that going to public school capital construction. Alleman wants the money split one half to education, one quarter to parks and recreation, and the other quarter to state highways. She's waiting on the OK from the Secretary of State to begin the petition process.
