LOTTERY VALUE VO/SOT

LIVE:

A STATE SENATOR'S EFFORTS TODAY TO DETERMINE THE POTENTIAL LEASE VALUE OF THE CALIFORNIA LOTTERY PRODUCED FEW CLEAR ANSWERS. LAST WEEK, GOVERNOR SCHWARZENEGGER SUGGESTED LEASING THE LOTTERY TO HELP FINANCE HIS HEALTH CARE REFORM PLAN.

SUPER: TODAY/ STATE CAPITOL

VO: (:25)

STATE SENATOR DEAN FLOREZ IS CHAIRMAN OF THE GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION COMMITTEE, AND WAS THE SOLE LAWMAKER ATTENDING TODAY'S INFORMATIONAL HEARING TO DETERMINE THE MARKET VALUE OF LEASING THE STATE LOTTERY TO A PRIVATE OPERATOR. FLOREZ SAYS THE GOVERNOR MAY HAVE PUT THE STATE IN A WEAK POSITION TO EVENTUALLY NEGOTIATE A LEASE. DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER FRED KLAAS TESTIFIED THE VALUE OF LEASING THE LOTTERY DEPENDS ON WHETHER THE STATE WILL CHANGE ITS POLICES REGULATING THE WAY THE LOTTERY IS PLAYED.

SUPER: SENATOR DEAN FLOREZ/D-SHAFTER

SOT: (0:30)

SAYS: "I'M NOT SURE IT'S A GOOD IDEA FOR THE GOVERNOR TO TIP OUR HAND AND SIMPLY TELL WALL STREET THAT WE'RE GOING TO, IN ESSENCE, NEED THAT REVENUE FOR HEALTHCARE...., ...THAT GETS US THE BETTER PRICE."

SUPER: FRED KLAAS/CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER/DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE

SOT: (0:37)

SAYS: "NINE DIFFERENT FINANCIAL FIRMS THAT HAVE ALL SAID THE LOTTERY IS AN UNDER PERFORMER..., ...WHAT MODEL WE THINK IS BEST."

VO TAG:

PRIVATE MONEY MANGERS FROM GOLDMAN, SACHS AND COMPANY, AND J-P MORGAN ALSO TESTIFIED THAT DETERMINING THE POTENTIAL VALUE OF LEASING THE LOTTERY WOULD DEPEND ON MANY UNKNOWN VARIABLES, INCLUDING WHETHER THE STATE IS WILLING TO ALLOW NEW TYPES OF GAMES, HOW LONG SUCH A LEASE WOULD LAST, AND WHAT NEW GAMBLING COMPACTS THE STATE MAY SIGN WITH INDIAN TRIBES.

EXTRA BITES:

SUPER: SENATOR DEAN FLOREZ/D-SHAFTER

SOT: (0:32)

SAYS: "WE'RE SOMEWHERE IN THE BOTTOM HALF IN TERMS OF PRODUCING REVENUE. IF WE ARE GOING TO PRIVATIZE ..., ....IN TERMS OF EXPANSION OF GAMING?"

SUPER: DIRECTOR JOAN BORUCKI-CALIFORNIA STATE LOTTERY

SOT: (0:23)

SAYS: "SO WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT GENERATING A NEW PRODUCT LINE BASED ON WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS..., ...WITHIN THE CONSTRAINTS THAT WE OPERATE UNDER TODAY."
