CONCORD, N.H. — A bill to set up a perpetual-motion state lottery, with a $100,000 top prize, was filed in New Hampshire legislature Thursday. The measure would provide for sale of not more than 500,000 tickets, at $2 each, only in state liquor stores, for each drawing. But the drawings would be continued as fast as gross income of $1 million taken in. The bill would give the state liquor Commission authority to run the lotteries. Sponsors are Rep. Claude Dupont and Rep. Donald S. Conover, both Manchester Democrats. State revenue from the new gambling proposal would be earmarked for the retirement of school bonds for school buildings.
