REVENUE IMPACT 1/
This bill would have no impact on South Carolina lottery revenues.
This bill would add Section 61-6-1507 to Chapter 6 of Title 61. This section allows retail dealers of alcohol to sell lottery tickets or shares in his or her retail store. Retail dealers of alcohol are already permitted to sell lottery tickets or shares according to the language stated in Chapter 150 of Title 59 (South Carolina Education Lottery Act). Considering that retail dealers of alcohol are already allowed to sell lottery tickets, this bill would have no impact on South Carolina lottery revenues.
