The N-C-A-A discourages mixing gambling and athletics. But it's --not-- prohibited, and that's why the North Carolina lottery can advertise and sponsor college sporting events.
The state lottery has spent more than 385-thousand dollars on advertising and sponsorships of university sporting events across the state since September.
Now, the arrangements are under scrutiny.
A group of state lawmakers want to limit such advertising from the lottery, and they're supporting a bill that would ban advertising at high school events.
The bill originally sought to ban all advertising at college events, but the House Finance Committee watered down the bill yesterday.
