A new committee has been formed in the state of Mississippi that will work to study the lottery, taking a look at neighboring states that offer lottery gaming and see how they fare with the operation of the activity. Richard Bennett is the chairman of the committee that has nine total members and was formed by House Speaker Philip Gunn. Bennett stated during a meeting this past Thursday that the committee will not be making a recommendation on whether the state should or should not offer lottery gaming but if it does happen, they want it to be done right.
