Mississippi lottery bill fails, but another could pop up

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -
The odds of Mississippi getting a state lottery this year are slim.

A lottery bill died because the House did not consider it before a Thursday deadline.

But its sponsor, Republican Rep. Mark Baker of Brandon, says there's still a possibility that a senator could insert a lottery into a revenue bill in the next few weeks. Budget and revenue bills can wait until a later deadline.
