Under the Dome

Lottery studying ALE relationship

The state Lottery Commission wants to know whether it's getting its money's worth from the state Division of Alcohol Law Enforcement.

Currently, ALE provides background checks, investigates complaints and ensures stores don't sell lottery tickets to minors. ALE also checks for illegal activity at lottery retail locations. For those services, the lottery gives ALE $800,000 a year.

The state lottery commission has hired a consultant to study whether the lottery is getting a good deal or whether it would be cheaper to hire in-house employees to do the same service.

"Let's just say it's always good to review contracts," said Tom Shaheen, executive director of the lottery.
