Mississippi lawmakers could debate creation of a lottery

Supporters say money being spent on lottery tickets elsewhere could, instead, be spent in Mississippi, creating revenue to help pay for highways or schools.

Opponents say lotteries are spiritually corrupting and the games create unrealistic hopes for people who struggle to pay their own living expenses.

Mississippi is one of six states without a lottery.
