(SACRAMENTO) Senator Ling Ling Chang (R-Diamond Bar) made the following statement in response to the California State Auditor’s report of the California Lottery:

“The findings today demonstrate what we suspected all along. That the California Lottery has a culture of profits first and schools last.  They owe our schools millions of dollars and I will be introducing legislation to ensure our schools get what they are owed.”

Last year The Joint Legislative Audit Committee approved Senator Chang’s request to audit the California Lottery who has history of controversy.  After analyzing their profits and expenditures Senator Chang believed schools were not getting enough funding in proportion to skyrocketing lottery profits.
