The Missouri Lottery was established in 1985, and since 1994 has utilized its proceeds to help fund the state's public education programs. The lottery began selling its lottery tickets on January 20, 1986. The executive director oversees the organization and reports all of it to a five-member commission that is appointed by the governor. May Scheve Reardon took over as the Executive Director of the Missouri Lottery in December 2009. Initially, the lottery proceeds were directed to Missouri's General Revenue Fund. In 1992, the voters approved Amendment 11, which resulted in the allocation of funds to public education. The proceeds for the Lottery are appropriated by the Legislature and since July 1993 have been allocated to education programs.
