BEND, OR -- Deschutes county will lose more than half of the money it receives every quarter from video lottery gambling. Deschutes County Assistant Legal Counsel John Laherty told commissioners the law requires money to be given for payment of the debt on lottery bonds, first. He says this means the county will get less than half of the 236-thousand dollars it has received in the last three quarters. Laherty says the dollar loss is about 120-thousand dollars. He says some counties have formed a working group to find out if there is any remedy that mioght be available to counties to claw back some of the lost revenue.
