Lottery Sheriff Earns More than Head of State Police

Arkansas’ new lottery sheriff earns more than the head of the State Police Department.

That’s the latest news coming out of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.  According to an article by Michael Wickline and Seth Blomeley, Governor Beebe is finally criticizing the exorbitant salaries lottery employers are receiving. In particular, Beebe does not agree with the lottery commission’s opinion that the lottery security director, Lance Huey, be paid over $115,000 per year–several thousand dollars more than the head of the State Police.
