GOV. SCOTT'S SECURING FLORIDA'S FUTURE BUDGET SUPPORTS
CONTINUED RECORD EDUCATION CONTRIBUTIONS

TALLAHASSEE - Governor Scott's Securing Florida's Future budget supports the Florida Lottery's core mission of providing funding for education in Florida by investing $176.8 million in the Florida Lottery. In FY 2016-17, the Florida Lottery had a record sales year resulting in $1.66 billion in contributions to education.

Governor Scott said, "We know a great job begins with a great education, and the Florida Lottery is working to provide our students with the tools they need to succeed in college and careers. We will continue to support the Florida Lottery so they can keep making historic investments in Florida's education system."

The Securing Florida's Future budget includes
  • Vendor Fee Budget Alignment
  • Following a record sales year which resulted in $1.66 billion in contributions to education, the Governor's budget provides an additional $7.6 million for ticket vendors, which will cover projected game sales and help continue increased education contributions.
  • Information Technology
  • Provides for a business intelligence software upgrade to replace the current system which is 10 years old and will reach the end of support in December 2018. The Governor's budget provides more than $1.3 million for IT equipment to increase innovation and efficiency.

    Florida Lottery Secretary Jim Poppell said, "Governor Scott's Securing Florida's Future budget reflects his continued and unwavering commitment to investing in education and strengthening Florida's economy. The Lottery will continue doing all we can to maximize contributions to Florida?s education system."
