The article reports on the recommendations concerning state lottery advertising contained in a report from the U.S. National Gambling Impact Study Commission in 1999. The commission asks governmental gambling agencies to take steps to limit certain kinds of advertising. It also asks the U.S. government to start keeping statistics on who buys lottery tickets. The report includes other potentially controversial recommendations, including a ban on netting on all college and amateur athletic events. The recommendations will be incorporated into a report expected to be released on June 18 and then sent to Congress.
