The lottery made its first transfer of more than $7.6 million in net proceeds to the Lottery Proceeds Fund in the Mississippi State Treasury last week. For the first 10 years, the first $80 million a year from the lottery will go to infrastructure needs. After the $80 million is made, the rest goes to education. After the initial 10-year period is over, the first $80 million will go to the state’s general fund, with the remainder continuing to go toward education.
