Gov. Mark Dayton: Reassured Electronic Pull-Tab Sales are on Track

December 12, 2012 Updated Dec 12, 2012 at 7:55 PM CDT

St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Governor Mark Dayton says he feels very reassured that the state is on track with electronic pull-tab sales.

That comment comes on the heels of a briefing Wednesday morning with the Executive Director of the Gambling Control Board and staff from the state's budget office.

During the budget forecast announcement last week, financial experts said pull-tabs weren't being implemented as quickly as planned.

The Governor's office says there has been a gap between projections and actual sales, up to this point, due to a number of factors, but that is to be expected when launching a brand new program like electronic pull-tabs.

Taxes from the games will be used for the state's portion of a new NFL stadium.
