(BOISE, ID) – Public schools across the state are getting $18 million from the Idaho Lottery.  Fiscal year 2013 marks the highest dividend in the lottery’s 24-year history in the Gem State. It’s also $7 million more than schools received last year. Another $18 million will go to the state’s permanent building fund, and $12 million more will be added to the state’s bond levy equalization fund. Gov. Butch Otter praised the lottery’s contributions to education as a “boon” for Idahoans.
