“Today, Governor DeSantis outlined his unwavering commitment to ensuring every Florida student has the best education possible. At the Florida Lottery, we are working every day to support that commitment. Since 1988, the Lottery has contributed over $34 billion to enhancements in education. This year, we are on pace to send a record $1.87 billion to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund. I want to thank Governor DeSantis, Lieutenant Governor Nuñez, and the Legislature for their continued support as we work together to create more opportunities for future generations.”
