Lottery officials will take a couple weeks to generate new revenue creation ideas.

Beginning Wednesday and running through the first of June, the state Lottery Commission is seeking proposals from private sector firms on ways for the Lottery to generate more revenue for the state.

Lottery spokesman Al Larsen says the Commission is essentially giving companies a clean sheet of paper to come up with ideas.

“You tell us how we need to get there or how you would go about executing a plan to get us there,” he says.

Larsen says this is not an attempt to privatize the lottery, merely an effort to improve performance. He also says the Commission is not locked into awarding a contract to any firm. It will decide by October whether to go ahead with any plans.
