ABSTRACT
Governor of Tennessee Phil Bredesen on June 11, 2003 will sign into law a bill that would implement the state's first lottery in more than 100 years in his efforts to restore financial stability to the once triple-A rated state. Some of the funds will be leveraged by selling bonds to fund K-12 infrastructure projects. Bredesen said he wants to use the roughly $420 million in federal aid for the state.
