1997-1998 Lottery Budget

Development of the 1997/98 Lottery Revenue Budget began in January 1997. Revenue projections were made at that time and formed the basis for the March, 1997 Board of Trustees' Information Item. The revenue projections for 1997/98 are based on a conservative estimate of potential revenue. The projection is based on past years' receipts of lottery revenue and consultation with the state lottery commission staff regarding overall state lottery revenue estimates. Based on this information, the budget reflects a modest increase in lottery receipts. The budget anticipates $27.3 million in new revenue for 1997/98 and includes a beginning balance of $13.3 million. Additionally, the budget projects system interest earnings of $1.2 million. Together these figures form the base 1997/98 Lottery Revenue Budget of $41.8 million, less $7.4 million which will be budgeted as the Systemwide Reserve for a total budget of $34.4 million . The Systemwide Reserve will provide for economic uncertainties, cash flow variations and fluctuations in lottery receipts as well as to provide funds for projects to be determined by the chancellor. These figures are illustrated below:
