The resolutions were proposed to amend the Georgia Constitution to restrict the use of lottery proceeds to fund core areas, including the HOPE Scholarship Program; other college and university tuition grants, scholarships, and loans; pre-kindergarten programs; and the state educational shortfall reserve. The resolutions would have removed language from the Georgia Constitution that allows these funds to be used to provide training on the use of computers and electronic instructional materials to K-12 teachers, technical institute personnel, and university professors and instructors. The resolutions also would have removed language permitting lottery funds to be used for capital projects at educational facilities. Under the current Georgia Constitution, both are areas in which funding is permitted once the core areas, as listed above, have been fully funded.
