Arkansas Lottery Panel To Vote On Pay Raises
The Arkansas Lottery Commission is voting whether to give pay raises to its director and other employees.
The commission is scheduled to meet by conference call on Wednesday to vote on whether to give cost-of-living and merit pay raises to Director Bishop Woosley, Internal Auditor Matt Brown and other employees of the games.
The commission met in a closed door session Monday to review Woosley and Brown's performance. Woosley, the former chief legal counsel for the games, was hired as the lottery's director last year.
Arkansas voters approved the lottery in 2008 to raise money for college scholarships and the state began selling tickets in 2009.
