Nashville (WVLT) - Governor Bredesen says officials should consider revamping the criteria for lottery scholarships as a way to improve access to state colleges and universities.
He asked higher education officials in a budget hearing to consider the effects of recasting the lottery scholarships to include a need-based element.
Bredesen's proposal could include adding a family's wealth into consideration when determining what amount of scholarship should be awarded.
