Lottery provision struck from immigration bill

With little debate, the lottery provision was excised from an anti-illegal immigration bill in the House. The subject of a Steve Bousquet column, the measure would have barred illegal immigrants from winning the lottery. They could still play and contribute to education funding -- they just couldn't collect any prizes.

Sponsoring Rep. Sandy Adams removed the section with an amendment today. Neither the amendment nor the overall bill (which requires businesses to participate in a federal worker verification program known as E-Verify) garnered any discussion.
