Senator Dunleavy asked whether  the lottery would be limited

Mr. Fellman  replied that by  year 10 the grand  prize would

Senator Dunleavy  appreciated the  magnitude of  the prizes.                                                                    
He  thought that  the prize  levels could  be cause  for the

Co-Chair MacKinnon agreed  with Senator Dunleavy's concerns.                                                                    
She  thought that  smaller prizes,  spread  to more  people,

Senator Dunleavy  countered that he appreciated  the current

Co-Chair MacKinnon  noted that under the  legislation if the

She added that  it would take a very long  time for the fund

asked how the  public would be informed  of participation in                                                                    
the lottery.                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
Vice-Chair Bishop deferred to Mr. Fellman.

Mr.  Fellman   hoped  that   Department  of   Revenue  would                                                                    
contribute funds  for advertising  in the initial  years and                                                                    
thought  that   in  subsequent   years  the   program  would                                                                    
advertise itself. He noted that  2 percent of the fund would                                                                    
be  used for  advertising. He  believed that  the odds  were                                                                    
very good,  there would be  four winners each year.  He said                                                                    
that if the  cap were reached there would be  winners at $50                                                                    
million, $25 million, $12.5 million,  and so on. He stressed                                                                    
that  95 percent  of the  donations would  go directly  into                                                                    
education in one form or another.                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair  MacKinnon thought  that the  likelihood of  winner                                                                    
would be greater if there were more winners overall.                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
Mr. Fellman agreed.

Co-Chair  MacKinnon noted  that the  current Pick.Click.Give

Mr.  Burnett stated  that there  was an  $8,000 fiscal  note

time cost of  making the change to  the application process.                                                                    
He  said that  the department  would add  the extra  lottery                                                                    
information to the  advertising efforts already established.                                                                    
He  stated that  additional advertising  could be  added but                                                                    
the exact  costs would be  hard to determine at  this point.                                                                    
He assured  the committee  that getting the  information out                                                                    
to the public would be of minimal cost.

Co-Chair   MacKinnon  related   that  the   current  program                                                                    
required a  501, a tax deductible,  charitable donation. She                                                                    
probed the how the  relationship with donations and gambling                                                                    
would work in the legal sense.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
Mr. Burnett  replied that 25  percent of the  donation would

state would be  tax deductible, or the  remaining 75 percent

Co-Chair  MacKinnon  asked  whether the  consumer  would  be

Mr.  Burnett thought  that it  would be  easy to  inform the

Co-Chair  MacKinnon  thought  that  the  administrative  fee

Mr. Burnett agreed.

Senator von Imhof  queried the maximum limit  a person could

Mr.  Fellman indicated  that it  was possible  to give  your

Senator von Imhof wondered whether  how the state would make                                                                    
more than it paid into the lottery from year to year.                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
Mr. Fellman clarified that of  the 25 percent donated to the

prizes. He explained that 80  percent would sit in the fund.                                                                    
He furthered that  25 percent of all  the donations received                                                                    
in  the following  year would  be added  to the  80 percent;                                                                    
there would always  be 80 percent from the  previous year to                                                                    
build on in subsequent years.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
Senator  von Imhof  asked  how the  annual  payout would  be                                                                    
calculated.  She wondered  whether the  payout was  based on                                                                    
the money  invested per year and  not the value of  the fund                                                                    
at $500 million.                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
Mr. Fellman  replied in the  affirmative. He stated  that if                                                                    
no bets were placed, there would be no payout.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
She  questioned   what  would   happen  if  there   were  no                                                                    
participants in a given year.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
Mr.  Fellman  replied that  if  no  one participated,  there                                                                    
would be no payout.

Co-Chair MacKinnon  opined that the issue  remained unclear.                                                                    
She relayed that  a 10 percent winner would  not qualify for                                                                    
$50 million;  if only  20 percent of  the $500  million fund                                                                    
was available for distribution,  the maximum payout would be                                                                    
approximately $10 million and not $50 million.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
Mr. Fellman  replied that if  there was $500 million  in the                                                                    
fund,  the  state would  pay  out  20  percent of  the  $500

Co-Chair MacKinnon clarified that  $50 million was the total

testified in  opposition to the  bill. He lamented  that the                                                                    
legislative  process   was  difficult  for  the   public  to
