Proposed Mass. budget includes nonexistent lottery money

Issue highlights problem with budgeting based on speculationBOSTON, Mass. — When Massachusetts lawmakers approved a $24.7 billion state budget last week, they included $25 million in expected revenue from the multi-state lottery game, Powerball. The trouble is, the state's bid to become a part of the game had been rejected and state Treasurer Timothy P. Cahill neglected to let legislators know. Senate Ways and Means Chairman Steven Panagiotakos says the money was included in the budget because Cahill gave the impression that Massachusetts would be admitted to the lottery. The rejection took place more than three weeks before the budget was approved.
