Lottery For No State Taxes?

Atlanta Journal-Constutition: HOPE bill won't include SAT plan

And this is why I love the Georgia Legislature...

Also Monday, a Republican House member said she will propose a lottery of sorts to raise money for HOPE [A state scholarship program using lottery money to fund it -- Ted]. Rep. Jill Chambers of Atlanta said she plans to file legislation giving Georgians the option of checking a box on their state income tax form, giving $10 to HOPE.

Once a year, the state would draw a name from those who participated and that person would be exempt from state income taxes for life.

I can't make this stuff up.
