Last year, $30 million of the Lottery revenue was directed to local police and firefighters' pensions.
INDIANAPOLIS (July 6, 2020) - The Board of Directors of the Multi-State Lottery Association elected Sarah Monnett Taylor, Executive Director of the Hoosier Lottery, to serve as Board President for Fiscal Year 2021. Taylor is a Greencastle, IN native. She’s a graduate of Greencastle HS and Indiana University. Taylor was first appointed as Executive Director of the Hoosier Lottery by former Governor Mike Pence in 2013 and reappointed by Governor Eric Holcomb in 2016.
Sarah will be the 31st MUSL Board President and the first ever to serve from the Hoosier Lottery. "It’s my honor to help lead the 38 member lotteries with a strategic plan to help each one responsibly maximize profits for all the good causes they support,” said Taylor. "Powerball is the number one product of the Multi-State Lottery Association and has successfully helped generate billions for good causes. Each member lottery offers one or more multi-jurisdictional game, and all profits are retained by the individual lotteries to fund projects or purposes approved by their authorizing legislatures. In Indiana alone it helps us contribute to police, firefighter pension fund and teacher’s retirement funds to the tune of $30 million each.” Indiana to date has the most Powerball Jackpot winners with 39 total.
Sarah served MUSL most recently as Vice President. Prior to that she chaired the both the Audit Committee and the Finance and Audit Committee and was the first Hoosier Lottery Director to serve in both roles, as well.
