Update (Nov. 9, 2007, 11:18 am): See below for rescheduled date and time.

The Joint Lottery Oversight Committee in Tennessee, which was scheduled to meet this month to discuss the many problems recently plaguing the Tennessee Lottery, has been delayed.

The meeting was originally scheduled for November 26th.

According to a note sent by a co-chair's staff member, the delay is due to the fact that two ongoing audits have not yet been completed.  Both audits will be discussed at the upcoming meeting.

One of the ongoing audits is being conducted by KPMG, and is costing Tennessee taxpayers at least $90,000.  It was ordered by the Tennessee Lottery, but does not examine any of the multitude of errors and glitches that befell the Tennessee Lottery ever since they switched to computerized drawings in July.

When Tennessee legislators discovered that the lottery did not order an investigation of the many errors that took place, lawmakers took matters into their own hands and ordered their own separate audit, which covers the errors and glitches.

The oversight committee, comprised of Tennessee state Representatives and Senators, will discuss the findings of the two audits.

A rescheduled date for the oversight committee meeting has not yet been set.

Update: New meeting date set

The Joint Lottery Oversight Committee meeting has been re-scheduled for Monday, December 10, according to a memo released by a staffer for Co-Chair Bill Ketron.

The meeting will take between 1:00 and 4:00 pm in the Nashville legislative office.
