LANSING (A -- The state
Senate passed a bill setting
up a state lottery by a vote
of 25-7 yesterday. The mea-
sure now goes to the House
where similar legislation is
in committee.
The bill passed was sponsor-
ed by S=n. John McCauley (I-
Grosse Isle). who said if the bill
is quickly passed by the House
and signd by the governor. a
lottery could be in effect by
Sponsors of the bill soy a
state lottery could add $75 mil-
lion a year to the state general
fund. However, detractors claim
the actual figure could be clos-
er to $30 milion.

to the general fund with the
other 55 per cnt being sud to

Rep. Bob Traxler (D-Bay CityE.
The bill passed yesterday al-
so taps Gov. William Milliken as
the man to name an all-respon-
sible commissioner of the lot-
tery agency.
"It's like a pot of gold sit-

the floor," says one close ob-
server of the lottery issue.
"Those guys can all see jobs
and commissions and patronage
and money, and they all want
to grab hold of something."
The state is allowed to spon-
sor a lottery under a constitu-
tional amendment approved by
state voters earlier this month.
Rep. Ray Smith (R-Ann Ar-

earmarked for the state's capi-

renovation of state - owned
