The North Carolina Senate came back to Raleigh Tuesday and approved a lottery by one vote.
The Senate vote was tied 24-24, but Lieutenant Governor Beverly
Perdue, the Senate's presiding officer, cast the tie-breaking vote
in favor of creating the lottery.
The state House approved the same bill in April by two votes,
meaning the measure now heads to Governor Easley, who is likely to
sign it since he has sought a lottery since taking office in 2001.
